  • The walking trail is extraordinary. It takes you through nearly 240 years of military from the modern age to the revolution. I learn something new every time I visit. My young nephews loved the inside kids-oriented stuff also.
  • We love coming here. When the weather is good the outside displays are informative and fun to run around. We bring our grandson here and he actually asks to come back often. He loves the inside and outside.
