“A great little museum!”

Veterans Memorial Hall & Military Museum
Ranked #4 of 12 things to do in Sonora
Attraction details
Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

We stopped in Sonora for lunch after some other Gold Country adventures. The museum is housed on the first floor of the Veterans building in the heart of old town Sonira. It has tons of military uniforms, equipment, firearms, photos, and models! This is a good stop for anyone interested in military history or militrary veterans. My only complaint is that they need a larger space for it all. The museum is confined to four rooms and takes less than 30 minutes to see, but one could take hours to look at every single thing. Free admission with donations accepted.

This is a small museum, yet it contains some of the most interesting military memorabilia in the area.
Quite a fine tribute to our veterans and well worth the time spent.

We visited some time ago, but . . I remember very clearly that we were VERY impressed and glad we took the time to go thru the museum. It covers a number of wars w/a variety of memroblia. We visit Sonora often and wished we'd gone into the museum sooner.
