  • The History of the 28th Div was very good but it lacked a lot of military equipment on the grounds. There could have been more information on the history of the grounds that the Museum sets on.  more »
  • Lovely grounds with memorial statuary. Small but interesting displays. Small gift shop. Kind of wheelchair accessible -- the floors aren't flat, but they're navigable. It was a quick walk through.  more »
  • My husband and I found ourselves behind a school guided tour. We were going to walk around them and go on the self guided tour, but we decided to "tag along". The tour guide was a Vietnam Vet himself ...  more »

  • A hidden gem in Boalsburg, PA. Originally dedicated to the "Fighting 28th Division, USA, the museum hopes to soon open its collection to all service branches. The docents can answer just about anything about a frontline soldier's life behind the line. Showing articles from mostly the First, Second and Korean wars, the extensive collection is in tip top condition. The vast outside acreage is dotted with memorials to fallen comrades, as well as tanks, large bore guns, and vehicles.
  • A wonderful museum and beautiful grounds! Perfect place for brisk walk or (better) a leisurely stroll past all the monuments and memorials.
  • Very knowledgeable place to visit and pay respects to the military personnel that had given their lives for our freedom today.
  • This museum has a good representation of WW1 militaria with explanations of the equipment and how they are used. The grounds with its monuments is also well done.
  • great place to go on a flat walk/bike ride/skating/cross-country skiing if the conditions are right. they do lots of great events here too, everything is well organized and easy-to-access. also, you can park here and walk to downtown Boalsburg when there's an event over there.
