Amazing museum, too bad it had to close. The displays were done well and showed the many facets of WWII. It will be missed.

Due to financial issues the museum has been closed since late winter. Kind of sad as there was nothing like it in the area. Word was they were trying to locate family members to return memorabilia and donate the rest to other museums.

Great museum and interesting military equipment on display. Unfortunately the museum went broke recently and now has been closed for the last 2 or 3 months.

So sad. I take visitors often. This was equal to the quality of anything in DC. Just too out of the way. The founder recently died. RIP Armed Forces Museum.

It is unbelievable that this museum wasn't picked up by one of its sister cities. What a great loss to our area. Anyone who ever toured it can attest to what a wonderful and informative museum it was. Unfortunately, its tucked away location was its...More

By now the Museum has closed and what a shame. I hope someone has stepped up to buy it and preserve a part of history that future generations will know nothing about.
