Roosevelt Collection at National Firearms Museum

posted on March 1, 2012

The NRA National Firearms Museum has received a selection of items from the private collection of Theodore Roosevelt, and will have them on display for upwards of three years beginning in spring 2012.

The original location of the famous Rough Rider's collection was Roosevelt's former Sagamore Hill home and museum. Scheduled renovations have closed Sagamore Hill, and the displays were loaned to the NRA until they are completed.

Among the collection are the icon's Rough Rider hat and jacket, private desk, New York Governor's chair, a series of his personal firearms and much more.

Over 100 items are currently being reviewed and prepared for display by NRA curators, and are expected to be available to the public by late spring.
