A small but interesting museum with artifacts from WWI, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, and Gulf Wars. There is an interesting 15 minute video of the Coast Guard, a small theater with film from WWI, and Mannequins wearing official uniforms of all the services. Very interesting.

This is a very interesting military museum. We really enjoyed the film that was showing about the women pilots of WWII, they were treated very poorly and did great services for our country.

This is a nice museum for folks interested in all things military, and it has a nice representation of the various wars and conflicts. Interesting display of weapons from the past, and a very knowledgeable historian on staff. Well worth the $5 ($4 military) admission.

Thank you! We're in the process of updating several of the dioramas for historical accuracy. Visits from people like you is the reason we exist. We're so glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you'll return!

Lots of displays that were interesting and plenty of people about who can talk about what you are seeing. As a vet with 17 years of service it was great to see these volunteers work so hard to keep our history alive.

We had an amazing time here, each war is represented in a separate area little facts and interesting tidbits everywhere. Our favorite was the living history a few veterans were there to tell us some really interesting history. It’s great for all ages.
