A lot of military history donated to the museum by local veterans of the wars. Having been in the military it took me back to early years.

A great display of military historical artifacts, personal information. The information and displays takes one through a complete history of the American military from civil war to the present. The volunteers are friendly and knowledgable.

If you were in the military you will want to visit this place. If you were not in the service you need to visit. Their slogan is Freedom Isn't Free, and they will show you why.

Anyone who values the freedoms this country has allowed us needs to visit this museum. Fisherman's Village is a great stop in its own right, but this museum is the icing on the cake. With military items from years past, this place will bring a tear to your eye as you are reminded about the sacrifices those have made for... More

Liked the size, can spend as little or much time, your choice. I was impressed with volunteers and interaction offered. Great stuff and donations leave the expense to you. Convenient if you 're not a shopaholic you have a worth while choice to spend your time.

vers.y interesting to see all the different uniforms our services have worn over the years. Only thing missing was a tribute to the Merchant Marines, who sailed without armaments to deliver supplies to the troop

The Military Heritage Museum at Punta Gorda's Fisherman"s Village is in a place of honor right up front on the pier. It has an inspiring collection of artifacts from America's wars which are well organized and displayed. Its volunteer staff is drawn from those who have served and they are ready to answer any question. As a Vietnam war vet... More
