My husband and I were with a tour group that stayed 5 days in Miami. We went here as a group and were given a talk/overview by a veteran who had served. The talk was worthwhile and informative. There are lots of things on display...More

Just by chance looking at our GPS before going to Key Biscayne, we discovered that we were about two minutes away from this museum and thought we would have a look. It became one of the highlights of my life very quickly, as upon entering...More
