  • A lot of history spread out in 2 buildings. Staffed completely by volunteers and FREE, it's a great way to learn about our country. The exhibits are accurate and interesting (unlike some other museums I've been in lately where the exhibits are interesting but the information relayed is less than accurate or the exhibit is boringly accurate). Although free to enter, a small donation is suggested if you can afford it. NOTE: Kids enjoy seeing the tanks and guns but this is a small museum so there isn't room for running around or horseplay. It isn't a "stuffy, whisper only" type museum but it isn't for hyper uncontrolled kids either.
  • A hidden gem with excellent displays and dedicated volunteers. My kids and I have enjoyed every visit.
  • This place was unexpectedly awesome. Excellent displays. If you like war history, stop here.
  • So much information in such a small space. Covers everything from revolutionary all the way up to the present.
  • Amazing!! They got military items from all eras of war (revolutionary, civil, WWI, WWII). They have artillery, ammo, weapons, videos, tanks, jeeps, models, all levels of military history. Nazi Germany items, desert storm era.
