National Museum of Patriotism


National Museum of Patriotism

The National Museum of Patriotism is a museum in Atlanta, Georgia.[1][2][3]

The founder of the museum is Nicholas Snider, a retired United Parcel Service executive who created a large collection of sweetheart jewelry.

In July 2010, the museum announced a change in strategy. Under the new moniker of 'The National Foundation Of Patriotism', it will convert to an online museum, with the physical museum in Atlanta GA scheduled to close on July 31, 2010. According to the official website:

"As a result of the current economic downturn, it became apparent that the mission of the museum was suffering because of the domino effect the new economy has had on our visitors, fundraisers, and vendors. Therefore, The National Museum of Patriotism had to answer the call of the new economy to find a new way of doing business.

The National Foundation of Patriotism will become a virtual museum online. Affording the mission a broader reach, deeper impact and higher visibility than could ever be attained by one building in one city. Social media will be the engine that drives the mission to success."
