It was a very informative museum. My Father-in-Law, a WWIIVet. really enjoyed it, and explained a lot of the exhibits to us. He said it was great.Great for the whole family.

I went to the museum with a larger group and we got a guided tour. It was well worth it. The museum has all kinds of war artifacts. They have everything from uniforms, guns, planes, tanks, hand grenades, bombs, jeeps, flags, etc. They have dedicated spaces for many of the U.S. wars in the last century. I loved the WW1 recreation of being in the trenches, including smoke. I was refreshing to hear the guide life up the true heroes in our country, those that have gave their lives to secure our freedom. It might not be as interesting without the historian/guide. We were able to ask lots of questions and his knowledge we deep. I highly recommend taking the time to see this, if you are the least bit interested in U.S. war history. It was a little boring for our 7 year old boys, but the 10 and 12 year old enjoyed it.

The tour actually starts in the parking lot. Dead center is a MiG-21 and all around are tanks, and other equipment. Once you go in doors, there is an exhibit of military uniforms. There is a very large display of weapons in cases. Rifles RPG's, Bazookas, bombs, etc. ,As you enter the museum you enter WW1 trench warfare, then you enter WW2 Pacific War with replicas of Japanese ships, and equipment. You then enter the European theater. The museum spans the Korea, Cold War and Vietnam eras. A very good visit in my opinion.

What a wonderful job they have done with this museum. It's a sad point in our history, but they portrayed the period with grace and dignity. Very well done!!

I can think of no better way for the younger genterations to learn the TRUTH of American history. This museum brings to life WHY AMERICA IS SO GREAT and how we achieved that - through the blood, sweat, tears and SACRIFICE of our armed forces - not the policitically correct polticians!

This place is amazing and many of the exhibits were so realistic they gave me goose bumps!
