This is a small museum, yet it contains some of the most interesting military memorabilia in the area. Quite a fine tribute to our veterans and well worth the time spent.

We visited some time ago, but . . I remember very clearly that we were VERY impressed and glad we took the time to go thru the museum. It covers a number of wars w/a variety of memroblia. We visit Sonora often and wished we'd gone into the museum sooner.
