The Swiss Army Museum Society (SAMS) is a competence centre for all aspects of Swiss military history. We are committed to the goal of establishing a Swiss army museum. The society promotes the conservation and protection of historical Swiss army materials, a cultural asset well worth preserving. The Historical Swiss Army Material Foundation was created to enable the society to reach its objectives.
The Historical Swiss Army Material Foundation (HSAM) is the professional organisation created to provide the correct expert care for the historical army artefacts entrusted to its care. The basis for the Foundation’s work is a service level agreement with the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS).
