Whenever I get a chance for the events happening here, I am there. There are guides at each display showing tanks, old and new, history the guides tell you about each on the grounds. They had bunkers authentic looking from WWII, live bands and re-enactments with attire from that period. One cannot walk away without feeling so proud we live... More

I often walk my dogs around the Army Heritage trail which has informative war era displays, tanks, guns, and choppers. There are multiple display buildings to enter as well. You can walk, bike, jog around the Army heritage trail and the trail connects to the Carlisle War college golf course trail to continue your journey. I'd guess altogether combining the... More

My teenage boys enjoyed touring this area even though it was a very hot/humid August day. If you have military history buffs, this is the place to be.

I brought two of my grandsons here for an adventure and it was better than expected. They had learned about different U.S. wars in school, but this was the first time for them to have hands-on experience with some of the equipment. Also new to them was the education about the military lives of individuals of each war. Their classroom... More

Great place to stop by for a couple of hours. My son is a history buff and loved walking the grounds, seeing the different exhibits both inside and out. For kids make sure they get their dogtag as they enter. Totally Free as Well

The self-guided museum is a nice tribute to US Army veterans and active duty. Rest rooms were clean and there's also a small cafe. Outdoor exhibits cover a wide area and the gravel paths are best suited to closed-toe shoes.

I visited the Library and Archives to learn more about my grandfather's WWII service. The workers in the Library were extremely helpful and were unhurried while helping us. We learned many things about his service and left with a list of many more leads to follow up on. Thanks to those who serve and support this great resource!

As the granddaughter, niece, and daughter of war veterans, this place was of particular appeal to me when I visited this week with my Fajer. So many interactive parts added to the display to make it a truly unique experience. Many displays outside help to create a great presentation of our military and its past.
