  • They have great displays and events that highlight historical events and local veterans that participated. It is always a good place to meet up with fellow veterans and family

  • If you are interested in having an intimate exploration of American Military and War efforts this would be a good place to go. I was not. I was more interested in the prairie history and there wasn't a lot of that but what there was very well done. I especially enjoyed the personal stories that you can listen to. They did something imaginative I haven't seen before and that is they give you a dog tag when you enter and along the way you scan it and you listen to a personal story, but they make it sound like it's your own, very imaginative. Note: I found the museum difficult to find. I couldn't find a sign and kept going around the block because google told me it was there. I finally decided to ask someone, found parking and someone just happened to be leaving through a locked door. Apparently, I was in the right location but not at the entry door which I never did find. I walked around the museum and when it was time to leave, I could not find an elevator and had to climb the stairs. It seems there maybe a few kinks this museum needs to figure out. Also, there is one price, $12.00 without exception. I was told parking will be across a busy street and you would have to walk uphill.
  • We ended up not going in once we discovered our uncle's story wasn't being featured here at this time but the staff was so amazing helping us figure out how we could find his story on line. So many helpful and friendly staff members here! I'll return when I have more time and go through the entire museum.
