Interesting museum that offers a real life look at artifacts and memorabilia from across the military spectrum- better for older children with at least some knowledge of military history

This museum had artifacts that go way back into history. Amazing to see how uniforms, guns, tents change with the times. On you way out the door please make a donation to ensure this museum is around for other to see.

My dad was a WWII vet so I was very interested in their display of that. Lots of things on loan or donated by vets and families of vets. There were a few vets there the day we were there telling stories of their experiences.

We stopped for bite to eat and I wanted to look at the military display and was quite impressed. The staff was very friendly and answered my questions.

We visited today with our three teenage sons. I wasn't quite sure what to expect...there is a lot of stuff in what at first seems like a small space but had seen good reviews on TripAdvisor. We made the trip for one of our sons' birthday since we were in the area. Everything is clearly labeled and sorted and it... More

I visited this museum with my son on his bday who is a Marine vet. We enjoyed it very much. It was bigger than most. No admission fee just donations accepted which was well worth it.
