  • A great research facility, beyond just museum exhibits that highlights the 1st Division's history during conflicts. Well laid out and informative. The external vehicle park featuring many armored vehicles is also very good, especially with kids.
  • An amazing museum; fully funded by the McCormick foundation. It only costs five dollars for parking, everything else is free. The museum is a state of the art archive and reenactment of all the major wars and conflicts that the United States has participated in. Both entertaining and educational. This museum is truly an under-appreciated gem.
