My husband loved the museum and it kept him entertained while we checked out the great little unique shops. Just a fun day on the Gulf. We stopped for a beer and appetizer.

The Military Heritage Museum in Fisherman's Village, Punta Gorda, is small but extremely interesting and definitely worth the visit. We must never forget that freedom isn't free and that we should always respect and thank those who have fought to make our nation what it is - a bastion of freedom.

Anyone wanting to learn more of our history needs to go here!! The displays and information you can see and get here is amazing. They have people that were part of the services working here to help explain everything to you. You can spend a lot of time here if you want to. Very nice place to go and learn... More

Brings back memories.........some good, some not. I always take at least a few minutes (usually more) to visit during our visits to Fishermen's Village. The museum does great work and is manned by volunteers. The displays are constantly changing..................not to be missed.

A great rainy day activity or just good to remember our countries couragous past. The volunteers that work there are a treasure trove of knowledge. The museum is small and you can get through it in 30 minutes, but go slow and take as much in as possible.

My husband and son loved this place and must have walked around for 45 minutes, talking, reading and learning. The gentlemen who was talking to everyone was very pleasant and even let our son take photos in a uniform. Thank you!
