    Very Nice
    Veterans get in for free, I think it was only $6 for adults. I made a donation since I am a veteran. Two story museum with lot's of outdoor static displays. Great place to learn about that era in our Military history with great displays and plenty of gifts of all sorts for your favorite veteran. 1-2 hours minimum, I believe they close at 5pm everyday they're open. Nice clean with restrooms

    Solemn Memorial
    The museum looks to be going through a renovation. The grounds are a solemn and heartfelt display of those who paid the ultimate price for freedom. It also is a tribute to all who participated in the war. While the entry gates were open - mid afternoon on an October Saturday, the offices were closed. The grounds have artifacts of some of the equipment used during the war. Overall a moving experience.

    Never forgot
    I was driving along and just happened to catch this museum in Weatherford Texas. Much to my surprise I spent the whole afternoon reading & taking in everything in front of me. Some of the military equipment were reminders of a precious life. You could not ask more from the volunteers. They were knowledgable and very willing to share their Knowlege and experiences. Well worth your time and of course please be generous with your donations. Let’s never forget them!

An excellent museum, well done, thoughtful, sobering. My husband served in 1971 in Vietnam, he was a Huey helicopter pilot. It was amazing to see the things pertaining to his life during that time. The memorial wall will bring tears to your eyes, so many brave young men lost. I highly highly recommend this museum.

I have made many trips and stops at the Vietnam veterans memorial in Mineral Wells Texas over the past seven or eight years. It's a very nice place with some special equipment and information on those who served and dad and did not come home. As items are donated or as the veterans are able to purchase items are added. Come out and see the special place. It is our duty to show others and our youngsters what millions and millions of their fellow Americans lived through so many years ago. Normally you will find actual Vietnam veterans there willing to share their experiences, talk about the weather, or just give you a big friendly smile
And if you're able please make a donation. You will not miss it and it will be some of the best money you've ever spent

The National Vietnam War Museum is a small unique collections of artifacts covering the helicopter pilot training program and other operations at Wolters Air Force Base in nearby Mineral Wells. There is not a fee to visit the collection or the garden area located next door. The gardens are maintained by a local group of Master Gardeners and community volunteers. If you were in the service during the Vietnam Conflict, you will appreciate the collection and be able to have a quite moment in the gardens. The museum operates on donations and your comments and donations are appreciated.

Nice Museum for it's size. Friendly volunteer staff. Lot of Models and art displays inside. Outside, some vehicles, helicopters, etc. with 2 wall memorials. They have a new building, but haven't moved in. That will be really nice. No charge, but donations accepted. Limited hours. Definitely worth a visit.

My husband who served with the "Big Red 1” first infantry in Viet Nam in 1967-68 thought this was an excellent museum. He showed me C rations, a uniform like he wore, etc. There was a model of the armored personnel carrier he was taught to drive even though he ended up a "foot" soldier. While we were there 4 Black Hawk helicopters flew in from Fort Hood. Fabulous! I got great pictures. The Viet Nam helicopter pilots were trained a couple of miles west of here. There is a replica of the wall in Washington D.C. here and a kiosk where you can look up the location of known fatalities of the war.

Visited in 2012 for the first time, no one was there but it really made a great impact on me. Even tho I'm not an American (I'm Dutch) I was impressed. Visited for the second time in 2014, this time with my 2 sons. Got a chance to talk to the very nice man who attended the building, showed us around and explained a lot of things to us. That made an even greater impact on me, he took all the time for us.
I'll be in Texas again in 2016 and when I have the chance I will surely visit again. And also pay my respect to all the men and women this museum s dedicated to, as well as the volonteers working there.

You can see the passion and commitment of the veterans who put this together. The museum is small but packed with interesting memorabilia.

Amazing place to take young children to teach them about our countries history. The gentleman who worked there was very helpful in explaining things to my son and letting him explore. Highly recommended to anyone.

Nice gardens to walk through, museum is small at the moment as they are working on expanding to a permanent building. It will be great when it is done.
