  • Was looking for something to do while waiting for a flight out of town and this place did not disappoint. Great collection of military items. Only wish I had more time to spend. I was there for an hour and felt like I had just fun through the museum. Great place to spend the afternoon if you are a history person. Much better than I expected in Fayetteville NC! Hidden Gem!
  • This place is awesome. With only donations if u wish u can go in and see some pretty great things. Went here with my grandfather who was in way back and had a good time and heard some great stories I'd never heard. It'll definitely make you appreciate what others have done to keep the rest of the country free. Building is clean and staff is super helpful. And most days u can run across someone who sacrificed much of their life to keep us free.
