When we tried to visit, they took not only driver's license info, but ran the driver of our vehicle's social security number (did a background check) and took a photo. After 10-15 minutes of this procedure, the officer at the gate inspected the badge we...More

Come in the winter. The birds are pretty. It's a bit of an effort to get in but worth it. Bring kids to chase the ducks.

We had a great time feeding the ducks, geese, and peacocks. The deer were chilling in their enclosure so we didn't get to see them as much. Great family outing if you have base privileges.

The grounds inside the quadrangle are beautiful with deer, peacocks, and ducks roaming peacefully. The museum itself, has many interesting objects and was an educational place to visit.

My children were able to get up close to all these beautiful animals and even feed the deer. They loved it and any family would love it too. You just need to get a visitor pass first to have access to the base.

First it was difficult to find. Forget GPS. This is within a military installation so some roads are gated. We ended up driving along the base perimeter to find a gate for visitor passes. An hour later after waiting in line to show our IDs,...More

I went there two weeks ago but the base seemed like it was on lock down. Is there a way I can get to the Quadrangle or hours that I have to go between?

Given it's an active military installation, lock downs can occur from time to time, depending on military requirements. The best source of information would be to call the installation's Office of Public Affairs. The phone... More
