Very small, but crammed full of items. Best of all, they let you climb into a helicopter, jet trainer, and a Jeep. It is located in a strip mall. The folks that staff the place seem to all be vets and are very helpful. Well worth the $5 per adult. No cards accepted, cash only.

This museum is a very informal place. It is run by volunteers, most have served. They have lots of cool models, restorations, and items from around the world. If you go, make sure to check out the back. That is where they keep all of the big stuff. This place does accept donations. I highly recommend giving to them. It... More

Great artifacts and very knowledgeable guides...particularly enjoyed that the kids could actually touch and sit in some of the vehicles. If you pull into the parking lot, you have to go in!! Well worth the time!

Don't let the street view fool you! For a dot on the map, this is a very interesting piece of our military history & would recommend anyone interested in American military history to stop! Not sure I would say that young kids would find it very interesting but they do have a few interactive things they might enjoy. The volunteer... More

Don't let the tiny little unassuming exterior keep you from stopping. It's in a little stripmall that you have to keep an eye out for or you'll pass right by it! Be mindful of the hours though; they're not open every day!! We almost missed out on a truly wonderful experience. They have artifacts and history from WWI - Gulf... More

Glad you enjoyed everything you saw. Our volunteer Ron who keeps everything going is trully amazing. We can be missed, that is why we painted the roof. We wish... More

Very interesting and the price was very reasonable. The staff were great with my nieces and got them involved in a couple of the displays.

The Unimpressive exterior hides a gem of military information on the inside. There are lots of artifacts to look at and restored military vehicles in the back room. There's a jeep, plane, and helicopter your kids can get in. My 4 year old loved it. FYI, no credit/debit machines so take your cash.

Had a blast in this little place. The guide Tom was very informative. This place is a must for military history buffs. Get your kids off the video games and take them for a fun adventure they won't forget!
