  • Very cool place with a lot of military memorabilia to look at. Can’t beat the price to get in. (Free) Really enjoyable!
  • Free but not easy to find. You have to go through a security check point! Wonderful displays. Give yourself at least a couple hours.
  • You have to go through a security gate, and all adults must show ID. This was an amazing experience. We arrived an hour before closing so had to move quickly, but it was totally worth it!
  • i really love this small but compact museum, with so many delicated aircraft and tank models, life size vehicles from WWII and countless items from even older wars. the gentlemen taking care of this place were so friendly and knowledgable, we talked over fourty minutes about south carolinians and the history as well as the exhibitions. they are running this museum on zero government sponsor but complete donations and volunteers, however all the display are in very good shape, tidy, clean and well maintained, we had a wonderful two hours and could spend even more. will surely visit again next time when in columbia. entrance is a military guarded gate, need id checked to enter.
  • We took our 9 year old son for a tour, he is a huge WWII history buff. Great museum, we really enjoyed it & learned so much more than we knew going in. A great place to take children to teach them about the sacrifice of serving our great country.
