  • Pretty cool experience. We didn't know this place was there until was saw the helicopters next to the highway. We made it a note on our way back through to stop. The exhibits inside are outstanding, and there are several that people can get into. It's was a cool experience!
  • Interesting artifacts about each war. Some of the voice displays didn't work, but all in all it was great and we enjoyed it. It would be nice to have handicap carts for people who can't walk for long periods of time.
  • Great experience. Everything is organized like a timeline. Very clean. A lot of parking space. Free.
  • I could spend days at this place. There is so much to see, and read, and do you'll really want to take your time to savor every exhibit. Easy to get to, lots of parking, and indoor AND outdoor exhibits. Truly an educational museum.
  • Had a great day exploring with the family. The outdoor park is great for showing kids the reality of war. The museum is very respectful of the stories it tells....one caveat....WOMEN....women have served since war began...whether on or off the field. Let's have stories of both for each era...all in all a loving and honorable presentation of our Army. Oh, and Free, but please bring a couple bucks for the donation box.
