“Harvey Ellis at his most grandiose”

National Military Heritage Museum
Ranked #36 of 48 things to do in Saint Joseph
Attraction details
Reviewed April 8, 2012

This one is worth it just for the building, which was designed by notorious drunkard and brilliant draftsman Harvey Ellis as the city's Central Police Station.

This is one of those places that is the dream of someone and they are making it come true. For that purpose alone, it deserves all the attendance it can get. On top of that, it is all about honoring the actions of our soldiers throughout the world and over decades of time. The currator personally showed us around and described uniforms, weaponry, battles, machinery, etc. from all the major wars of the 20th century. They are restoring a lot of rolling stock and creating new displays all the time. It took about an hour and was WELL worth it!

I was given an individual tour of The National Military Heritage Museum in St. Joseph, Missouri, on Friday 3 November 2006.

Mr. Flesher is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated.

His items are authentic or authentic replicas (of battle representations, for example), to the extent possible.

I am a military veteran of 22 years service and am proud and honored to have been able to tour this museum. I am definitely passing the word!
