It is free to get in. They have the various wars by section. There is a purple heart section also and a female war veteran area also. The people there are very pleasant and will assist you in any way they can.

Very good experience. No admission. Very good exhibits detailing each war with plenty of identifying information. The informative signs were very helpful and it made us appreciate what people gave up while in the service of our country. Very well done.
