Loved the exhibits and got a sense of real pride from people who served in the military and this was the place to honor them. The kids loved the outdoor military vehicles as well.

Lots of memorabilia to see. Husband is a Viet Nam vet and he enjoyed it very much. Veterans on site to discuss and inform about the displays. Definitely worth a stop if you have any interest in the military and history of the USA.

While visiting Huntsville for SHSU Family Weekend, my daughter and I came across this museum. It is very well organized from the wars that helped begin this great country all the way to Afghanistan/Iraq. We found it because we were drawn to the helicopters and tanks outside after finishing at the Prison Museum. Once inside, we were pleasantly greeted, given... More

If you want to spend a rainy day in a terribly fascinating, well-done museum, look no further. This is it. This museum has so many veterans items it's mind-boggling. If you live history or the military, you need to mAke a stop.

I visit this museum about weekly and know the volunteers who work there on a personal basis. I also take folks to this museum when they come for a visit to Huntsville. The typical reaction of those who see it is "gosh, I never knew there was such a great museum like this in this area".

This museum may be small, but it is jam packed full of military history from the American Revolution all the way to current Afghanistan. The MIA/KIA Table for 1 will make you tear up; it certainly made me! The kids really enjoyed seeing the tank, helicopters, and jet outside.

I am not a big fan of this kind of history but my husband is. He thought this place was great. My 3 year old loved this place too but it is was hard for him to not get tempted to touch and play with everything since it is all out in the open. I do not recommend bringing kids... More

This is a very excellent museum and it is dedicated to Veterans of wars from WWI to Desert Storm. They even have a veteran in the back who talks about his experiences, but he may not be around much longer. There are journals written by several vets which you can stop and read. This is a very user friendly place.

My father, who helped to get funding to build this museum, passed away a couple of weeks ago. Hi memorial service, appropriately, was held at this museum. The people who run the museum could not have been friendlier or more helpful.
