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.

Was in Cape Coral for business and asked my son to come along. He spent almost 3 hours at this museum and loved it. Great WW2 exhibits. Definitely worth a visit! And as a gift to all, there is no admission fee!

This is a place every Veteran should visit. Run by Veteran volunteers with lots of stories. We were surprised by a free lunch to Veterans during our stay. We spent 3 hours trying to take in all of the exhibits from every US conflict period.
