  • I went mainly to see Rev War, 1812, and Civil War, but also learned a lot about WW1 and WW2. Very interesting displays.  more »
  • Excellent knowledgeable staff and beautifully preserved war relics. More than just War Memorial for certain.  more »

  • Lots of great stuff there, and the tour guide was great! Has pieces from every major war the US has fought in, and has relics from some past presidents. Well worth the price if you're interested in history. I was shocked to hear that they only have 10% of their collection on display due to space limitations! The remainder is in storage.
  • If you love war history and VA war history, come here! Hidden gym with a TON of really cool memorabilia and things to learn. Huge inside despite appearances.
