This Museum, which is free to all, does a remarkable job of telling the Corps story from its beginning to current day. Each significant era--Founding, War of 1812, Civil War, World War I, and World War II, Korea, and the Cold War are told with an interesting combination of technology that displays animations to real trucks and tanks to photos and memorabilia. This is not one you can rush through. The historical panels are rich with details and presented in an interesting and compelling way. We made it as far as World War II and want to return for the Korea and Vietnam sections. Their depiction of foxholes in World War I, significant battles, how people fought and with what, was so well done. At one point we exit out onto a Higgins Boat, and there was a veteran of Iwo Jima telling his story.
We ate in the restaurant (Tun Tavern) inside the Museum, and the food was excellent and fairly priced.
It's a valuable walk through history that is served up in an interesting and compelling way.
