  • A great museum with super friendly staff. There's always new things arriving every month so it never looks the same. WWII mash vehicles, a Higgins boat from the LST, purple hearts and medallions, E for excellence flags, and materials from the famous Evansville shipyard are just a few of the things you'll find here. And now you can see a rare Evansville made P47 that is the official State of Indiana plane. Admission is super cheap as well. So definitely stop by one Saturday or Sunday.
  • This is a great Evansville IN history lesson. We spent over 3 hours on a guided tour. You can go at your own pace but the guide we had was Topps! His name was Leslie Bryan. Most everyone here are volunteering. I saw thing from when I was a kid here. It really opened my eyes to how the war impacted everyone and everything in Evansville. It was $11 per person. But there's a lot of discount for first responders, veterans, gold star family and more. Call for an exact price. This would also be a great experience for the younger generation. Much better than the movie's ever showed.
