This is probably one of the most amazing army run museums I have ever been to. The Staff Sergeant at the front desk was very nice and knew the history of the museum well. The exhibits where amazing and very well put together. Best part is that it is free.

Would be nice if they would invest a little into more things to fill up the museum, utilize the other two floors, have audio on the displays for young ones can listen to the facts about what's on display, advertise it more to the public to get them interested and involved.
