“Family reunion trip”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I had an uncle that grew up in Danville many years ago, he fought in WWII, he lived and returned to Danville, later he my aunt moved to Florida as all people in their generation do. The War museum is located in the old city library that was built by Carnegie. The museum houses many pictures and artifacts and has the best group of volunteers, they seem to know everything, please take the time to stop in and talk with them, they will keep you so interested.

“Danville War Museum”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This was the best experience I ever could have hoped for with my friends and family. I took friends from out of state and my family of four for a tour that felt like a personal look into every exhibit on the tour. I would recommend this to anyone even close to Danville. THANK YOU to the people that run and support this museum.

“Definitely worth the visit!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Tons of artifacts on display representing every war that the US has had involvement. The volunteers are very eager to share their knowledge. Donations accepted, but not required - they only ask for $2 per adult. Good way to spend a couple of hours.
