“We honor them”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Every branch of service is represented men and women. The artifacts are well maintained and the staff veterans themselves have the most interesting stories about some of the members from Livingston County. It makes it all the more memorable because of these personal stories.

This is an amazing museum that everyone should visit. It has several floors of war memorabilia and items donated by local families of war veterans. Very nicely done. It is staffed by local veterans that have lots of good stories to tell.

“War Museum; Reverent and honorable recognition of our American Military, all heroes.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

I have visited several times. There is something new to see each time. Super interesting. Very knowledgable folk there to answer questions and point out facts/articles/memorabilia. American pride is present the moment I walk through the door. I am overwhelmed with emotion and cry every time I've visited. Thanks to Jack Murphy and his workers/friends/family
