  • This is a surprisingly well-sized museum, featuring artifacts, learning modules, and film. Priced reasonably. No Wi-Fi.
  • This is a great Museum, on what seemed to have been an unlikely WWII factory town.
  • It's a wonderful museum. It seems small at first, but it has several rooms filled with gear, information, diagrams, weaponry, uniforms and more. The staff was friendly and informative, and the price (I was shocked for how low the admission was, only 5$ each at the time!) for the experience was very reasonable. My fiance and I had a blast interacting and learning, and plan to visit again. We spent over two hours wandering through the various areas and still hadn't explored the entire place. The place was put together with a lot of care, and respect was given to those that worked on and behind the lines. It's a great learning experience that anyone nearby should go and see for themselves.
  • Awesome and fun
  • My experience at the museum was an emotional one. I found out there about the Eldred's World WarII defense plant that I did not know existed and the contribution that the era's women made to the war effort. Emphasis was placed on the population of the town being approximately 800 and the plant employed about 1,500 women that came from all over to work there. Then I experienced the gripping story of Col. Mitchell Paige, who has now become my new hero. I've only been a Legion member for 9 years but I'm sure I must have read about him in Legion Magazine. It just seems to me that an individual so decorated with the Medal of Honor must have been at least mentioned at one point in time. If he hasn't then he should have an article dedicated to his memory. This will be my quest until fulfilled. The museum offers something for everyone but especially to those who are melancholy of the era and to those who served. I was there with a Senior's group that I belong to in my town and couldn't pass up the opportunity. I'm glad I went. The place has left a mark in my soul that will always be with me.
