If you are looking for something unique to do with your family, especially on a non beach day. Lots of hands on displays that kids will love and learn about the history of this important WWII training center. Highly recommend.

We spent about an hour and a half walking around on the self-guided tour. Learned quite a bit about what was done there during WWII. Great exhibits and lots of history. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Definitely worth a look.

We just assumed that, being a museum, this place would be air conditioned--should have done my research! I spent the majority of our visit in the gift shop (the one part that does have AC) with our 4 month old, while my husband went through...More
