“Small but impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This small but impressive tribute to our military reminds of of the many dedicated men and women who served in so many places and under so many different circumstance. While we were there many former soldiers were trading stories and some of the jokes they told to keep their spirits up during troubled times. Thank you all for your service. Proud to be an American.

“nice little exhibit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is a nice collection of memorabilia as a salute to the people of the armed forces. It is only one room, but it is free. It is worth a few minutes to see the exhibit.

“More Opinions Than Facts”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

While the volunteers were enthusiastic, they were extremely opinionated and came off as bigoted. I am white, but I saw them treat a black couple and their child in a very rude manner for no reason. The young boy was well-behaved and the family well-dressed and well-spoken. Without being prompted, the volunteer expressed his desire to use some of the weaponry against our sitting president. We are all entitled to our own political beliefs, but the volunteers were quite extreme and offensive. Given their very unpatriotic behavior, I will not return unless these volunteers are removed. An audio tour would be far better than having these current volunteers spread their hate and disdain. Regardless of your political affiliation, I would assume most people would find this offensive and not what a military historical museum should be supportive of. These volunteers need to go. I was especially appalled that they said these things in front of children.

lots of neat artifacts to look at on a rainy afternoon! The people working there were very friendly and knew a lot of history about all the planes, uniforms, guns, etc.
