  • This museum gives a great history of the airborne and special operations units. We liked the displays and how they depicted where the event really occurred. The museum is free and well worth the time ...  more »
  • I had the opportunity to visit with a friend of mine, I confess that I had never heard before, but from former military paratrooper I was immediately interested and I was fascinated. What to say ... a museum that oozes history and courage. To visit with calm and attention, because it's simply interesting, engaging and well structured. Must see!

  • This is a quality museum with a lot of information inside, and it's very easy to spend 3-4 hours in here trying to learn everything. The setups looked great, and the staff was quite friendly. I'll have to come back again at some point. :)
  • Nice Museum. There are lots of models and large-scale dioramas. The Normandy/D-Day exhibit was very nice. The museum takes you from World-War II to Operation Desert Storm. Not as many exhibits as I expected. Took us about 1 hour to go through the museum.
  • Very well thought out, very well organized, and incredibly informative! The exhibits are top notch and the museum has a flow to it. We enjoyed our visit and we'll definitely be back!
  • This is a very well constructed chronological display. Definitely worth a visit. Hopefully they get New Zealand fixed on their world map soon :)
  • Excellent museum. The displays had a ton of information in them. I also didn't realize it was free!! Major plus. They also had a very nice display on their grounds for Memorial Day weekend.
