  • cant complain saw this off the highway thought it looked cool even better when we found out it was free kids loved it we loved it we love and support our troops thank you for everything you do. 
  • I took some out of town guests with teenage kids. We all had a great time. The outside requires a lot if walking. The inside has a nice interactive museum, a gift shop and a small cafe 
  • Great museum, good archives, personalized history of the US Army Americans need to see. Make sure you also check out the outdoor displays 
  • Awesome place. After driving by it for years we tools our 3 and 5 year olds last month. It is so cool and the little ones even enjoyed it. My son keeps asking to go back. The best museum we have been to and it is FREE!! A great stop when driving I-81. It can be a 10 minute stop or 3 hours. We will be stopping there many more times.
  • This is a tremendous museum, with a mile trail showing the history of the Army and a top notch inside section. Both tell the story of the Army by using the stories of the soldiers. You can qualify on a digital shooting range, experience parachuting into Normandy, being inside an attack during the Korean War, and much more. Plus it's free! There's easy access off I81, ample parking and friendly staff. This defines hidden gem.
  • Choc full of pokestops and 3 gyms. No pokemon though. There is also a soccer field here.
  • So much to see, the exhibits are well though out and interactive. Adults and kids will love this. If your into history or military hardware your sure to enjoy, and get educated at the same time!
  • This is a pretty awesome place. It has the different eras of the wars we fought. I didn't make it there to go inside on time can't wait to go back and learn more.
