  • Good coffee. Warmed Lemon tea cake with cream was home made and delicious. And the display in the museum was interesting, very well presented and extensively equipped with memorabilia. A must see if in the area.
  • Return visitors - always something new. Friendly knowledgeable volunteers - fantastic tribute to our Vietnam Veterans. Easy disabled parking and entry with elevator inside, loan wheelchairs and even a motor scooter. Reasonable entry fees.
  • This is a must see museum of the Vietnam War era. The collection is outstanding and extensive. The audiovisual presentation on entry takes 18 minutes and really fills in all the gaps if you lived through that time. Would highly recommend a visit.
  • Visited here with grand kids and all enjoyed it great tour given and very informative
  • Wonderful collection. Very moving stories. Excellent.
