The Corps’ visitor center and museum was dedicated in 1992. The center documents the history of the Corps of Cadets and its traditions. Memorabilia relating A&M traditions, the Corps and its special units are on display.

All seven Aggie Medal of Honor recipients are memorialized with six of the real medals on display. The Metzger- Sanders antique firearm collection is also on display. The center also houses a military research library.

The center is named after major benefactor Sam Houston Sanders, class of 1922. Sanders was on the 1922 Dixie Classic A&M football team when the 12th Man tradition was born. He graduated A&M with a degree in medicine and earned his doctorate from the University of Tennessee, where he taught, according to his 1991 obituary in The Eagle. Sanders was well known as an expert in the specialty field of ear, nose and throat medicine.
