We visit a lot of museums, military and otherwise, and this one reminded us of the type of military history displays found in many county museums, albeit on a larger scale. There are a lot of donated artifacts (uniforms, medals, war souvenirs, ephemera, etc.) from...More

The amount of artifacts and memorable is wonderful in detail. The WWII exhibit has a home setting of the era. I like that the Museum exhibits are arranged by War/era. It's a journey through our nation's history. They have a piece of the USS Arizona....More
