While at the Fisherman's Village recently, we stopped in briefly at the Military Heritage Museum. There is no charge to visit, although you can leave a donation at the front desk.

Interesting museum that offers a real life look at artifacts and memorabilia from across the military spectrum- better for older children with at least some knowledge of military history

This museum is small yet large in artifacts. It has items I'm sure are located no where else. It is staffed by volunteer servicemen/women. There are a few items that will take your breath away, I won't give it away.

This museum had artifacts that go way back into history. Amazing to see how uniforms, guns, tents change with the times. On you way out the door please make a donation to ensure this museum is around for other to see.

My dad was a WWII vet so I was very interested in their display of that. Lots of things on loan or donated by vets and families of vets. There were a few vets there the day we were there telling stories of their experiences.
