We drove across town to check out the #1 rated attraction in town only to find "closed until further notice". It is on the Veterans' Home campus and looked promising but was not open as of Friday 7-31-15

The museum takes you through the history of the military with very knowledgeable people to help you. Very interesting experience. Plus, on the same grounds are shelters for animals of all kinds. Great for the kids.

Not a big (or even medium size) museum in the traditional sense. It’s a collection of war and military stuff housed on the grounds of the Illinois Veteran’s Home in Quincy. You might really n not some of the home’s residents while on the grounds,...More

This is not a large war museums but it was very well put together in that it wasn't just a collection of stuff. Our tour guide was a Vietnam veteran and was very knowledgeable about everything we asked about.

Aside from the museum, which has been reviewed by many others, there is so much more! This is a great place for a stroll. Kids can get up close with deer, separated only by a chain link fence. Deer will eat from your hand. Another...More

We had a little trouble finding the museum because google maps took us in the back way to the grounds. If you go in through the main entrance, it's easy to find. This is a place you could go back to time and time again....More
