This is a free museum - donations accepted. The docents tell stories, and you can ask questions to learn more. It was a great place for him to enjoy while I shopped across Fisherman's Village.

No visit to Fisherman's Village should be complete without a visit to the museum. Although small, it is very informative and the folks there are friendly and helpful. No admission but donations are appreciated. Great place.

Family is former military and stopped in to see what this was about. Very informative, the people working their are very passionate about the place and history. Would see again and recommend to others. So much history in one place. Definitely should see at least once, but it changes so you might want to go again.

Glad we stopped by on our way out of Fishermans Vill. Perfect size, informative and free. There was a vet there answering questions but we were not able to speak with him because he was busy. Learned about folks from the area that served and that was cool. Donations accepted so we left one.. totally worth it and the time.

We have been to this museum several times in Fishermans Village. Every time we learn new information. Great guides that have a lot of accurate information. All of the guides have been in service and each has a different historical viewpoint. We took my father that is a WWII vet. They gave him special attention. Great visit!

Obviously the people who set this place up have a dedication to our vets. It has a great collection of militaria and the volunteers here care about our vets and military heritage. Don't expect.a high quality museum experience but definitely worth a visit and a donation. Thank you to the people who run this place.

Donated items from a huge variety of wars; the captions can be a little cryptic. Donations gratefully accepted, and the volunteers working there were friendly and welcomed questions.
