I'm not sure what is happening with this place. Both sides are virtually empty. There was a very good display of a bomber group in WWII, but the rest of the place is like a ghost town.

The Museum had many great exhibits but they were very poorly displayed. I understand there is some major re-vamping taking place but many of the exhibits were placed underneath lights with bulbs missing. These displays did not appear to be placed there over concern that...More

Not sure what is happening at this museum. For as little as they had, they shouldn't have charged an admission fee. On a good note, they have an excellent display of the 509th Bomb Group and loads of B-29 stuff.

I do not know if this used to be a history or an automotive museum as they had a mix of both in this building. Perhaps they are transitioning from one to the other? Either way, this was $5/person for access to both sides of...More

Almost empty. Was told they are closing the auto side of the museum and moving it over to the military side. Took about 45 min to see it all. Admission was only $5, but it was still too much to see the few items there....More

The Nazi flag was quite amazing. And I'd never heard of the Bennington flag. Boats were very cool too. Unfortunately there was very little signage to say what we were looking at and the lighting was poor.

Allocate lots of time for this museum. There are many small items on display that are as interesting as the large military items. If you are prior service, retired military, military history buff or just interested in the military, stop and visit this museum that...More

There’s not too many places left that truly honor the military indoors. No matter the weather you can find something new with each visit. My grandchildren love it here!

Worth seeing if you are there and have the time. Not worth a special trip. Needs better signs and labelling.
