My Dad visited this museum over his 93rd birthday celebration weekend. It brought some tears to his eyes, being a WWII veteran. Many thanks to the wonderful volunteer staff for engaging him in conversation during his visit.

It is small, but impressive, and would be an excellent stop while in the area if you are at all interested in military history. Lots of good displays and... More
