  • Great little museum with a ton of actual equipment from WW1&2. Some stuff from more recent wars also, but the main focus is WWII. They trained soldiers at the beach here to prepare them for D Day invasions. A great tribute to the brave men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedoms.
  • A great place to learn about military history along Florida's Forgotten Coast. Had a great time walking through the building looking at all of the exhibits. And the little theater they have inside shows a great documentary of the history around the Florida panhandle.
