  • This was a fun museum and my fiance and I really enjoyed checking out all the exhibits. The museum itself is comprised of 4 separate stories, each story containing 3-5 different exhibits. There are also there different shows you can attend if you get the "Master Explorer Ticket" which cost approximately $12 per adult including a 4D show, a planetarium show, and an exhibit show. It was a fun day and we really enjoyed our experience. The ONLY reason this is getting 3 stars is due to my experiences with museum trips in cities such as San Diego, Washington D.C., and Norfolk which are vastly larger as would be expected.
  • Incredible display of History. Admission very reasonable. Learned a lot!
  • Small but informational. Great short visit
  • Admission was $5. Relics were of historical interest. Happy to see history preserved. Would give it 5 stars if they had a bigger cannon.
  • Very friendly staff. Packed with lots of extremely important and interesting historical information.
