The artifacts at the museum are pretty cool, but what is even cooler are the stories of the men that used the artifacts. There is even a astronaut section in the back that has all the astronauts from the state of Michigan.The little ones may be bored rather quickly so use discretion with them.If you are really into history or...

Once again, we decided to visit this place based on the Tripadvisor reviews. It is a hidden gem, indeed. I feel bad for not remembering the name of the host, as he made out visit very informative. He was eager to show us different artifacts and to tell us stories about it. You can tell he loves his job, and... More

From the outside this museum looks quite small and one might not expect exactly how much history is obtained within. Showcases tell the story of modern armed conflict and space exploration on the human level of combatants and astronauts who hail from Michigan. Reading through and looking at each showcase as the story of one person is haunting and awe... More

It is a neat place to visit. They do a great job at honoring the men and women from Michigan who have served. My boyfriend is very into aviation and he loved it here!

This was a nice museum, and it had many displays featuring a soldier or pilot in one of the wars (WW1,WW2, Korean/Vietnam/middle east). It also did the same for astronauts. All of them were from Michigan or had lived in Michigan and it has a large selection of medals. It was a little pricey to get in.

This museum is full of memorabilia and stories of the brave michigan men that have served in the military. If you come to Frankenmuth you must visit. It is off the beaten path but well worth your time. My 8 year old grandson loved it too.

What a nice museum, really a terrific place to spend an afternoon. There many displays telling the personal stories of Veterans from every conflict. You get the sense of actually meeting those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our great nation. The people are very nice, and knowledgable, the grounds are beautiful with some outdoor displays. The... More
