There is a tank, a couple of canon, a boat, a jet fighter and a helicopter. It is usually quite here. Not too much nearby. The displays started to rust. Good for young kids on a sunny day. It is windy out there.

Great place to bring the kids to learn history and reflect on the past. My child found her great grandfathers name and saw some great service tools from the past, and what a beautiful bridge!

Took our 3 grandchildren after driving over the Rainbow Bridge. The wall of names of veterans serving during the different wars was quite extensive. Military equipment displays kept the kids interest and gave great photo opts. This was a fun quick stop.
