Every time we are traveling on I-81 my sons know that they will get to walk around the "army fields" . We have never been in the inside, but the outside alone keeps them busy and entertained for at least an hour and every time I have to drag them back to the car( since this is just a pitstop... More

Great way to spend some time learning about military history. Try the walking path to see real military equipment. My son loves it no matter how often we go.

As a writer and researcher, I must say that the services available at the Army Heritage Center are beyond expectations. Most people would go for the museum exhibition, but I must tell you their library and research facilities are unmatched in military research. The librarians there are excellent and helpful.

We live locally but only recently took the time to visit the Center. Spent about 1/2 a day there and really enjoyed everything. The outside area has some really great displays of large equipment/buildings while the inside is more detail oriented and allows a view of a soldier's life in the service. There are enough interactive displays to keep most... More

I had stopped her to have lunch with my family on our way to Delaware. It was very nice, unfortunately we had stopped during Octoberfest and it was very crowded. I'm sure it was nice but we didn't see that much of it.

We usually drove past this place wondering what it was. We finally stopped and boy do I wish we had done it before. There is military equipment on display from tanks to helicopters, there is interactive things to do in the museum. They have a store and a place to eat. You can research military history in the library. If... More

This is a must see if you are in the area. The outdoors mile walk view the artifacts from US wars was awesome. We were low on time and did not get to visit the museum part but will definitely fit that in if we are ever in the area again.

This is a great place to stop and visit for a couple of hours. It would be appropriate for families or just adults. It also houses an enormous Army research library.

This is one of those, "we gotta stop there one day" places that we would pass on the way home from a visit to my folks. Wow! I wish that we knew what we were in store for! I would of budgeted more time. I had no idea a that the grounds were as expansive as they are. I also... More
