Love the convenient location, close to great restaurants and bars. There is so much to learn there and the staff is helpful and clean. A great way to spend some time while the wife is at the beauty parlor.

Located at Fisherman's Village the museum is a must visit. All the Armed Forces are represented and for veterans it is a nostalgic journey into the past.

The Military Heritage Museum is worth a visit if you're in the Punta Gorda area. Admission is free (donations accepted) and the exhibits are well done covering a number of wars.

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.

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
