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.

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.

Went to see the new museum. More has been added to the displays. I was asked to bring my Military Picture to hang on the wall of Veterans. Cool!

This small but expanding museum has great displays of American wars, guns, flags, bayonets and more. I definitely recommend this place if you are nearby. There is also a little gift shop. Open 10-5. Cost is $5. Located at the airport.
