  • It was so beautiful!!!!! The grounds were kept really nice and building itself was beautiful! Then the inside was so nice! My son who os 5 years old loved it, my daughter who is 2 was kinda scary at 1st because of the sound effects! But after a while she was okay. Would love to go back!!
  • I've been to this museum twice and enjoyed it both times. My Grandpa is a Vietnam Veteran and he said that the exhibits were very realistic and you could tell that everyone in my family really enjoyed it. The new VR exhibit was by far my favorite part!
  • One of the best museums--military or something else. It's free! Donations are accepted and I encourage you to donate. It's worth it. Has snack bar, IMAX, and gift shop. The exhibits are unbeatable.
  • This is a great place to visit to learn more about the army. It is very educational to see what the recruits have gone through past and present. It's great for all ages, must see if you are in the area.
  • It was beautiful. They have amazing sets and did a great job laying out the whole thing. It was a very fun trip.
