  • I brought youngest daughter and loved it. Her dad was a Green Beret and this helped give her more history. Our oldest is coming to visit and we are bringing her and Dad who is 77. We are sure to enjoy it again this time with dad who can actually answer their questions.
  • This place is amazing. The exhibits are incredibly well done and detailed. It's an educational and touching experience to walk through the exhibits. The whole family can get something out of it.
  • The displays really made you feel like you were travelling through history. One of the best military museums out there.
  • Great display of history. I am always amazed to what the museum adds for the general public as well as military families to see and learn.
  • They do a great ceremony for Vietnam vets, with a medal. It is great. The exhibits are nice and the restrooms are clean.
