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!

Saw this walking into Fisherman's Village and our son REQUIRED us to go in. I'm glad he did! They have historical military items from most of the major conflicts of American history and it's all well displayed and the gentlemen we met were very knowledgable about them and were very eager to teach his more. As a veteran it was... More

We have visited the Military Museum on several occasions and always see something new. There are always volunteers wandering around to help explain some of the exhibits as well as give some first hand experiences. Very family friendly, very educational and the museum helps to bring real life to a tough, but necessary life. It's free and open to the... More

My friend and I took a 20-30 minute tour of this small but informative museum. Veteran hosts were knowledgeable and friendly. They have a vast assortment of old weapons, uniforms and pics that tell a visual story of wars in our history. Stop by and make a donation and say thank you to these men for their service. You'll feel... More
