This place is absolutely wonderful. I didn't expect the collection to be as extensive as it was. They had a LOT of stuff for each of the major wars US was involved in.

There was a WW2 vet going through while we were there, probably talked to him for an hour.

Very well-done exhibits!

My husband & I went through this museum last Sept. Not crowded at all. In fact, we were the only ones there! The owners/hosts were very pleasant. We wondered around for an hour or two. If you enjoy history & artifacts, you will love this museum. Very moving & a couple of times I had tears in my eyes.

Vietnam, Desert Storm and the war in Iraq all have been brought to through a daily does of TV and the papers.

I was humbled and moved by this Museum. To see what they fought a war with and won made me realize that the key weapon was their hearts. They wanted Freedom and wanted it bad. They loved this Country and planned on keeping it. It wasn't due to the technology. Uniforms, from W W I and W W II, guns, swords, pictures by the dozens. A section with German and Japanese war items. The memorial in the center room with all of the names made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. God bless them all.

We visited the museum a couple years ago and it was very moving. It has so much in that one building. I wish I could have gone in without my kids because there was so much that I wanted to read but was too busy watching them. It is definately worth the money to see, plan on staying a while and looking at it all. It is amazing.
