  • I visited this museum on a whim, because I had 3 hours to kill before my flight. It was so much better than I thought, and 3 hours isn't enough to go thru all the exhibits, artifacts and videos. There are uniforms, model airplanes, personal effects and a very large cross-section of Louisiana veterans exhibited. I had to go catch my flight, and really wanted to stay longer, because it was really interesting. Highly recommended when visiting Monroe Airport.
  • Awesome people. I met Chennaults granddaughter here. This is a must. DO NOT MISS this place. Wow....
