“WWII Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We visited the WWII Museum in honor of Veterans Day. Please go if you have a chance. We spent a couple of hours in the museum and could have stayed longer. There is much to see and the personal stories made the experience unforgettable.

“Great experience and slice of history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Wonderful artifacts, a good blend of written, auditory and interactive, loved all the large displays (tank, jeep, etc.). The museum staff (volunteers?) are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant with retro-dressed waitstaff is fun! Our favorite was the 4D Movie - great for the whole family! Watch out for the snow!

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This Museum is one of the finest I have ever visited. It rivals if not passes the Smithsonian cluster in DC. Plan for at least 3 hours and include the movie - it is amazing. (we spent over 5 hours here with my husband, myself and our 18 year old). The restaurant is exceptional also - a John Besh outpost!

The 4D movie "Beyond all Bounds" was a must see as well as the American Sector resturant. Great food, great happy hour.

“Didn't plan on going there but glad we did.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

It is surprising how large it was and the attention to detail was great. I'm glad we spent the day there and it does take a day to tour.
