Admiral of the Fleet Jonas Ingram Stryker was a legend among the people of the Twelve Colonies. It was inevitable that there would be an attempt to found a museum dedicated to the Colonial legend.
The result was the founding of the Jonas I. Stryker Museum Foundation. Dedication to the life and memory of Admiral Stryker. The museum foundation is also dedicated to perpetuating the memory of the Colonial Defense Forces from the Cylon War in order that the sacrifices of those who contributed to the victory over the Cylons may never be forgotten.
Originally there was much debate as to where the museum would be located. There were two factions to this debate; one group wanted the museum to be located on Stryker's home world of Aquaria while the other group wanted the museum located on Picon where Stryker lived during the Cylon War until the day he died at the age of ninety-six.
Eventually a compromise was reached and a museum was founded on the two colonies. Officially they have the same name but unofficially they are known as the Picon Stryker Museum and the Aquaria Stryker Museum.
The museum is located in the city of Nicopolis and is the main tourist attraction in the city. It is also the home of the Colonial Fleet Aviation Hall of Honor.
The museum is located in the city of Hyperion Bay. It is about one hundred miles from the city of Hastings where the Stryker Tomb is located.
