“Fantastic collection, nice curator”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Definitely visit it! Not crowded like other museums. Does not just focus on one war, but greatly expands one's knowledge on a multitude of conflicts.

“Neat place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

It was slow when we went so got a private tour. The guide was very knowledgable and informative and the collection is impressive. It is almost all uniforms (as my son pointed out) but there are some neat weapons as well and after all - being a military history museum, what would you expect. Glad we popped in.

“Tourist trap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012 via mobile

The 'museum' equivalent of a bad hotdog street vendor. It survives only by proximity to the SC Aquarium.
After 10 minutes you will have seen everything, realizing you've wasted your time and money.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Loved all the old uniforms and things that showed us how it used to be. Glad people thought to save these things and put them on display for us.
