Great museum with displays through the ages. I highly recommend visiting. Their are more pieces than can be properly displayed. The staff person was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Wow, this place really brings honor to all those who have served in the wars. I had never been in a Veterans Memorial Museum before, and it was so interesting! How appropriate it is to have the uniformed mannekin soldiers and nurses greet visitors as they enter. I felt like I should salute each one. The photos and models of the many airplanes, and the Corsair replica, were my favorites. The gentleman who kindly showed us around and explained many things brought it all home to my heart.
