“A Pretty Place to Walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Pretty park. A nice place to walk around a bit. I didn't get into the museum but I heard it was nice. The actual memorial was a bit overgrown and could use a little upkeep, but a nice memorial all the same.

“A well-worth half-day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

View the beautifly kept grounds, then visit the museam. quite small, but watch the video show first, its 20 mins and sets a good backdrop before you see the actual war sites. tons of souvenirs and a vast book selection, and helpful and friendly staff
