I took my dad through here who served 2 tours in Vietnam. Going through with him was absolutely incredible as there were things there that reminded him of his friends that he served with. It was very cool as he was showing me items saying this is what they issued it for BUT this is how we used it. This... More

We happened upon this museum, we were there at the Airport to see the WWII planes that had been on display. As my companion is a Vietnam vet (Marine) we decided to check it out. The place is crammed with artifacts donated from the men & women that were there, and thanks to them for sharing so many personal items.... More

For a small (optional) donation you can spend 10-20 minutes or more checking out their nice collection of Vietnam memorabilia and artifacts. Outside there are several Vietnam-era military vehicles as well. And of course next door is the NAS Wildwood Museum with a nice collection of warbirds. Stop in and pay your respect to our "Forgotten Warriors" of the Vietnam... More

A must for everyone to check out - we found it on our way back from Cape May Brewery. Lots to see and the husband/wife are very friendly. My grandsons enjoyed it too - lots of things to view. It's directly across from the Cape May Airport.

My sister, brother-in-law, two cousins and I visited on August 23, 2014. My father, who served two tours in Vietnam and passed in 2012 didn't speak much of his service, perhaps because he had only daughters. This museum is a great tribute to those who served and came home and those who served and did not come home and an... More

I still remember my draft lottery number - 172. This exhibit floored me and it gave me insight on things I never knew. to the young, this exhibit may not mean much. But to folks our age, it was an eye opener. I never knew of the Empty Table tradition - however, once I saw it - I couldn't move... More

As a Vietnam veteran, I was not enthusiastic about visiting this museum until I got there. The area is relatively small, but packed with interesting equipment and memorabilia. The museum included many items that would be very familiar to anyone who served. While I visited I ran into a Canadian family with teenagers who had questions from their study of... More

This is a unique museum started by a dedicated Viet Nam veteran and it contains an outdoor area with a variety of military vehicles including a Navy river patrol boat and an inside area with a tremendous variety of donated items from the Viet Nam and Korean war conflicts. The inside displays provide an intimate glimpse into the daily life... More

This museum is located next to the Aviation Museum and both are certainly worth the visit. As a former active Marine, I truly appreciated seeing all of the donated memorabilia from all branches of the service who participated in the Vietnam War. I got to see some items that I had actually used in the field decades ago. This is... More
