If you have an interest in WWII, this is the museum for you! Loads of pictures and memorabilia! Two floors and a basement full of exhibits. Allow at least 2-3 hours to see it all.

We were surprised at how extensive this museum was. It has 3 levels,, plus an outdoor area with military equipment on display. The dioramas in the basement are fantastic. We spent about 4 hours there.

Blessed to have this museum in Abilene. Wish this place was packed to show all our children about history. Funny how schools drag our kids to art and library, never to show them what their grandfather/grandmother did for their country and the world. This place...More
