In 2018 the City of Pensacola agreed to a 100-year lease of the existing run-down Amtrak train station on Heinberg street for the Monument to Women Veterans to establish a Museum to Women Veterans. The Monument to Women Veterans will restore and remodel the existing facility and maintain the building and grounds throughout the term of the lease.
Within the museum will be both static and interactive displays of women from each branch of our military. There will be classroom areas and conference space for community education and seminars as well as a small gift shop and coffee shop. The retail operations will aid in the sustainability of the operation of the museum as well provide a portion of said proceeds for maintaining the Veterans Memorial Park on Bayfront. The new regional Museum for Women Veterans would be the first step in the process of recognizing and honoring women in our area.
