  • Looking to experience some military history? This is the place! Recently spent about two hours looking...reading...experiencing the various exhibits. There are all kinds of items to see. If I tell you what they are, you won't visit and I can't have that! I will say I was surprised to see things from World War I. Very cool! Many items are displayed with a photo of the military member, which helps connect you to the person. Carve out some time a visit. It is definitely worth it! Thank you to the men and women of the Armed Forces!
  • This is a really great museum and admission is free! The exhibit includes a huge amount of artifacts from various wars ranging from WW1 to the "War on Terror" started in 2001. Each room is dedicated to a specific war and there's even a library with tons of military books and photos. I was really impressed by the sheer volume of items and loved the framed newspapers with headlines from important days in history. They also host a free movie night which would be great to attend.
