Welcome to The Sullivan Museum and History Center!

Our 16,000 square foot facility on campus at Norwich University features permanent and changing exhibitions that tells the story of the university’s founder Capt. Alden Partridge (1785 -1854). Exhibitions and artifacts throughout the museum are interwoven with Partridge’s vision of a “citizen soldier” through military history, art, academics, music and sports dating from 1819 to present.

The museum offers opportunities for visitors, students, faculty, and alumni to in the words of Norwich University President Schneider “immerse themselves in the heritage of this great institution.”

We offer lectures throughout the academic year from faculty and guest speakers which includes professionals via our Smithsonian Affiliate program.

Collection Overview

Our collection of fifteen thousand artifacts include textiles, insignia, war trophies, weaponry, jewelry, paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, maps, academic paraphernalia, architectural plans and furniture.
