For a small town in a rural area of PA, this was a very nice surprise. Small but well organized and accurate museum of WWII. You could easily spend 3-4 hours there, or more if using their library. The staff, especially Steve, was welcoming, enthusiastic,...More

Went yesterday with a family group of 11. Great folks, great displays, too little time. You need several days, at least several hours, to really have a go at it - especially if you want to peruse their superb library. The Holocaust room is very...More

The focus is Pennsylvania's participation in the war naturally, but there's loads of stuff to see. Very modest entry fee & it's a self paced tour with several military folks and docents about to answer questions you might have.

You will spend hours moving thru this history. Military folks will enjoy. Donated items and history books make the visit a must see. Local Munitations factory was located nearby.
