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

The FW.V.M. is just a short walk from the NAS Wildwood Museum. The complete collection is made of items/exhibits donated by veterans of both the Korean & Vietnam wars. Outside is a collection of weapons and vehicles. These include: An 8 inch howiter. A home made six barrel rocket launcher armored vehicle. Vietnam river rat partol boat. 10 wheel cargo... More

Lots to see. I was impressed with the fact that much of what you see has been donated by people who were there. It is a very personal experience to these are all real people, not abstractions. The displays also include tribute to those who served ion Koea, during and after the conflict there.

We came across this museum on our way to the Aviation Museum. There was a balance of photos, and personal histories, along with re-creations and actual military equipment, and artifacts brought or sent home from the war. Outside, on the grounds they had military equipment from Viet Nam. There were Veterans on site to answer questions and share their stories.... More

My husband and I came across the Forgotten Warriors museum as we were leaving the NAS Aviation Museum in Cape May. Although the Aviation Museum was great, it did not move us as did the veterans museum. The collection of artifacts, pictures, etc. is amazing, as is the dedication of the veterans who staff the museum. What is different about... More

My boyfriend is going to school to study history, and he LOVED this museum. The artifacts and displays even kept my interest. If you don't love history and have interest in the war, it might be boring for you. Its pretty boring for kids too. But the displays are an excellent commemoration to the soldiers. My first visit here was... More
