  • A wonderfully curated museum. Immersive. Interactive. Educational. So much history and education about a unique time and how the developments during this time in history shaped battlefield medical procedures going forward saving countless lives. Friendly, helpful and well-formed staff. A great experience!
  • Wonderful museum! Highly recommend the walking tour with Rich Parker. Even with the cold weather and wind, this was a very educational and enjoyable afternoon. 11/10 highly recommend!
