“Well worth seeking out…”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

To echo another reviewer it is worth the hassle of getting onto the base and finding it.

There is a lot of information about the “Buffalo Soldiers” and their place in American history that I and most of us have never heard about. That alone gives a reason to search out this museum.

If you are in the Fort Huachuca/Sierra Vista area make it a point to add this museum to your day.

“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

The museum is colorful and great displays to look at, gives you a feeling of the time. They also have a nice gift shop and if you would really like a feel of things, request a tour guide, free but give a donation. It's worth the trip to Sierra Vista. Enjoyable and very interesting.

“Award winning museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

It is actually three buildings, with a gift shop in one. Many awards won over years make this the museum to visit over any others in Cochise County. The Intelligence museum portion makes it unique.
