    Traveling with my daughter in the Bike Across Missouri, we stopped to visit. I was a place of beauty and peace despite having many visitors. The staff gave an informative presentation of the Shrine and of the grounds accompanying the chapel. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed our visit following the guide and paying attention to details about the shrine. Though we were exhausted from riding our bikes during the day, we found new energy while visiting. It was a peaceful experience and a place to offer gratitude and thanksgiving for our friends and family along with our experience of riding with so many wonderful people on our bike across the state. Definitely worth the trip. We were there for about 2 hours and could have spent more time!

    Seeing so many names listed for the same family groups shows how much so many families loved their country.

    Hayrides, games for small children, animals, and TONS of unique pumpkins in all colors, shapes and sizes. Great place to visit in the fall!

    I was absolutely floored with this Vietnam Wall which is an exact duplicate of the one in DC. It is located in a farm field away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. I will be visiting again soon

    Very proud to have this in our city. Very emotional seeing all of the names. Very proud of those who sacrificied their lives for our freedoms. My husband is a vet and his brother's name is on the wall. He volunteers on Thursdays. So proud of him doing this. Grateful to those who have donated their time and money to build and care for this project.

    It seems that the museum is not open everyday. We visited the Perry County Veterans Wall Of Honor and this museum is located next to this site.

    In all honesty it has been a few years since I was here, but I loved it. You had to arrange for a viewing, but this lovely lady showed us around and we all got a real sense of what local living would have been like when the area was founded. I particularly liked the old cooling spring on site. The stone walls and foundation are also very cool to see in Perryville.

    It is located on the second floor of the building. There is an elevator you can use. ONce you find the library go to the first door on the right and meet Sarah. She gave us a tour of the place and showed us where to look. There is only one wall of books, documents, etc. but has a wealth of information. You can use a computer connected to Ancestry.com for you to do research. However there is NO printing capabilities. You can save to the desktop and then email the items to your self. A little time consuming but at least you have access to Ancestry.com.

    They have books on specific Families of Perry county. Most of them were from people who were interested in their history and but a book together. Some had lots of information in them.

    They also have census, marriage and death certificates from 1821 on.

    Sarah was wonderful and you must see her first to unlock all the cabinets for you.

    If you have any interest in historic farm machinery, don't miss this museum! I was really impressed with some of the rare and unusual tractors on display. They are well displayed with excellent with descriptions and explanations. I only wish I could see them in operation.

    We were in Perryville recently for the Missouri State Bowling Tournament and bowled the team event at this bowling center. The staff was very helpful and efficient. There is a little snack bar with very good and inexpensive burgers, fries and the like. This is a clean place and the restrooms (very important to the ladies) were spotless. This would be a great place for families to take children to bowl. There are a few video games and a bar as well.

    I have had two massages there and they were both wonderful. Relaxing, comfortable with the type of atmosphere you expect during a massage.

    We visited for the putt-putt golf course and found the facility to be not only fun, but clean as well. 4 stars instead of 5 due to the price ($17 for two adults and one child to golf) and we had to wait for the one employee to finish retrieving softballs from the batting cages (about 10 minutes) although I'm not sure why as we were the only ones there!
