  • 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.
  • This is a large and impressive place. I was here for a workshop over a few days. I like the focus on telling the story of individual soldiers. The exhibit can be dense and text heavy. If you take your time and have enough energy, there are real insights to be gained. They would do well to dial back on all the hero references. We can reach that conclusion on our own. Plan to spend some time walking the trail. I found the WWl and WWII installations to be excellent. Avoid the trail in the heat of the day. The sun and interstate will suck the fun from you.
  • Very nicely done. Out door display were very informative. The inside museum was spot on. We really enjoyed ourselves.
  • Excellent place to visit in order to learn more about American military history. I especially liked the outdoor military displays. A pleasant place to spend the afternoon
  • My husband and I were here on an extremely hot day. We were grateful to see that there were water coolers and cups placed around. It was very appreciated!!
