The War Museum was established by the Hellenic State in 1964 in order to honor all those who fought for the country's freedom. The relevant study was undertaken by a team of distinguished scientists, headed by Professor Thoukidides Valentis of the National Technical University of Athens

On July 18, 1975, the President of the Hellenic Republic H.E. Constantine Tsatsos and the Minister of National Defense Evangelos Averof-Tositsas inaugurated the Museum
