Large collections of donated military items from Civil War to present. Well labeled and easy to view. Free entrance (donations accepted). Great volunteer staff. All with prior military experience. Spend about 45 min to 1 hours.

It is small but filled with military memorabilia. It is not a place that I would travel great distances "just to see it", but if I were in the area (which I was) I would definitely stop in.

My husband (retired Army) and son (Navy) got me more interested in military history than my teachers in school so when I finally got to go see this museum I didn't want to leave. Once there you will be greeted by some Military Vets who really know their stuff. The are friendly and very knowledgable of all of the items... More

I would have preferred to have wondered about alone without the continual interruption from the volunteers. As an ex military man I really didnt need the added attention. That said the guys were pleasant and were only doing their best to make my stay memorable. Which I did

Very cool to see all of the old uniforms, weapons, and even medical equipment. The volunteers were very kind and informative. It's really cool to be able to visit a place with actual pieces from history without having to pay to do so.

My husband and I visited in Feb. of 2014 and were very impressed with the many memories shared there. Both our Fathers fought in WWII and my husband spent 4 yrs. in the Air Force back in the early 60's. What a wonderful tribute to our Service Men, and a Thank You for all those who volunteer at the Museum.... More
