We had not been to the museum since it moved fro Fishermans' Village. We were unexpectedly surprised at the new exhibits and all of the artifacts that have been collected. TV monitors broadcast vignettes of information about each of the wars that the US was in. The docents were most friendly and helpful. The video about Arlington National Cemetery was quite moving and the theater is outstanding. Be sure to stop in to the library where in addition to the book collection are numerous posters. The highlight of my experience was the virtual reality goggles. I jumped out of plane,watched a bomb disposal unit, and saw a medic care for a wounded soldier. Plenty of free parking and the requisite gift shop. During this pandemic, the museum took great cautions for all visitors- temperature checks, hand sanitizer and be sure to wear a mask. Don't miss this place!

As "new" locals, we really enjoyed our visit to this museum. We had read great reviews and looked forward to seeing it. We were not disappointed! Neither of us are veterans, but appreciate history The staff/volunteers were very nice and knowledgeable at the front desk as well as at the displays. It all "came alive" with their input! Many thanks for their dedication to keeping our history intact!

This museum is the MOST amazing place to visit in the entire area. You can spend an hour or many hours seeing and experiencing all that there is. The theater has live shows pre-scheduled including lectures, movies, and LIVE performances. It is NOT just for x-military people, but is a major learning experience for young and old alike and you walk away much smarter about the USA. Patriotism here is contagious. A definite 5 star rating for the Military Heritage Museum.

Located at the entrance of Fisherman's Village, Punta Gorda. Very informative and educational displays that are interesting. Nice addition to a day out in a lovely area.

Features thorough descriptions of all US conflicts highlighted by local's contributions and artifacts. Hands on activities for all ages. I particularly like the "Letters Home" display in the hallway featuring written correspondence from each era. Museum is new and beautifully designed. Staff is friendly and helpful. Library is awesome!
