Anyone visiting Eldred will always be attracted by the Eldred World War II Museum. A tank seems to get through of one of the walls of this museum. What a great attention grabber!

My friend and I were exploring Portville, NY when I saw a sign for Eldred, PA.....only ix miles away. I immediately remembered my sister telling me about the WW2 museum n Eldred. We called and found out that they were getting ready to open for the day, so we headed south into Pennsylvania. From the moment we were greeted, we... More

We were greeted when we first entered and the young men that run the place were very informative. They were eager to answer any question you had. They explained how the museum came about, and the importance of women during the war. I was moved as I read through the hand written memories of the days during the war. I... More

We decided to go to the museum on the spur of the moment and were pleasantly surprised. There are so many war artifacts and interesting stories to go with them. It really makes you realize the huge sacrifice the military made for us in the past and continue to make in the present around the world. The interactive exhibits were... More

The docent was very knowledgeable and attentive. You could tell that he understood the importance of history and the role that women played in the war.

I went there today with my 92 year old Dad that is a World War 11 Veteran and my Mother. Also, my brother, his wife, and my youngest son were there. The main reason why we came to the museum is because my Dad was receiving a brick with his name engraved into it that is placed at the museum.... More

This museum is a wonderful tribute to the "greatest generation" and includes the work of women during the war, who were workers at the National Munitions Company in Eldred. Definitely recommend!

A must see museum for every American. Buried away in this quaint town is one of the best museums I have ever visited. This is a "grunt" museum with 100's of recorded and written stories. It brings home the pain of war and the human side too. It identified local heroes of whom I was unaware. Sad because I am... More
