Walked past this museum many times when visiting Fishermans Village but decided to stop in this time. Could have spent hours in there reading transcripts and perusing artifacts. Very friendly staff that are happy to answer questions. Would definitely recommend.

It's not huge but a very nice little museum honoring vets. It's run by vets on just donations. It's worth a stop and leave a donation to support it..

Nice stop for military veterans if you and significant other are visiting fisherman's village. Guys are generally not shoppers so let your signifiicant other shop while you spend some time in this free military museum.

A very nice small museum. Interesting displays if you are ex-military. I wish the place had more support from all people you, old, military and civilian. It is free but they accept donations. A good spot to visit on a warm day then walk down the shopping area at Fisherman's.

I was in ah when we walked in there, it is FREE, donation accepted. You will find rifles, guns, clothing, anything from civil war to current, fire arms, explosives, old typewriter, to MIA to ww1 surgeon kit. This place is incredible and i didnt want to leave...The whole place is full of history and the veterans there will tell you... More

For someone who was in the military this is a very interesting, albeit small, museum. It only takes 30 minutes or so to see most of it but it's still a must-visit if you're already in Fisherman's Village.

The Military Museum is in the perfect location to attract visitors because it is in Fisherman's Village. The volunteers who staff the museum are very friendly and the exhibits are set up well. They always need more items for anyone who wants to loan a military item or memorabilia.
