National Scouting Museum moving to Philmont Scout Ranch

The Boy Scouts of America is excited to announce that after a comprehensive review, the National Scouting Museum will be relocating to Philmont Scout Ranch in northern New Mexico. A new expansion of the Philmont Museum and Seton Memorial Library and Education Center will allow us to share the rich history of Scouting with tens of thousands of campers, volunteers, alumni and visitors each year.

We take great pride and responsibility in our ongoing commitment to the mission of preparing young people for a life of character, leadership, and service.

For decades, the National Scouting Museum has played an extremely important role in preserving and telling the rich story of the BSA and the positive impact Scouting continues to have on youth and families.

We honor the trust placed in our organization by generous donors and benefactors by continuously assessing our stewardship of all of the wonderful and substantial assets and resources entrusted to the BSA, including those pieces housed in the National Scouting Museum.

Thanks to the thorough efforts of our volunteer and professional leadership, the National Executive Committee approved this path forward to best serve America’s youth and families and accelerate what the museum is trying to accomplish.

The relocation will take place thoughtfully and with great care over the next 18 months.

At this time of change, it is also important to thank the National Scouting Museum team for their contributions and commitment to preserving and sharing the history of Scouting. Their efforts are valued and appreciated as we take steps to continue the museum’s success in the future.
