  • Smaller museum that highlights our Michigan heroes. Much to see here. They have laid out the exhibits in a proper manner.

  • I definite must see while visiting in Frankenmuth. Any Veteran or Family of a Veteran will appreciate the sacrifices paid by our Heroes. I was walking on hallowed ground, a place of Honor.

  • Great museum. Tells the story of Michigan service men, an amazing Congressional Medal of Honor collection, and an amazing astronaut collection. All are beautifully displayed and the staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They have a tank and a plane outside on display as well. Truly something for everyone and a historical gem you should not miss.
  • The museum is priceless and very in formative. It represents all the Michigan service members which I really liked. The building is in need of a renovation at some point in the near future. However, let me not take a away from the real reason we went there and that was to pay tribute to those heroes and reflect on all they have done for us American. FOR THAT I PRAISE AND SALUTE ALL SERVICE MEMBERS!
  • This is the most comprehensive collection of military heroes I've seen. I've been to military museums in many states along both coast, this one out does them all. The detail in each display is amazing and what state pride on display.
  • A great museum off the beaten path. There is more in there than in bigger Military Museums. Had an absolutely good time and spent a couple of hours in there. Well worth the price of admission.
  • This place is a hidden treasure! John was amazing and will spend time talking you to if you ask. He seemed to know all the stories of the service men and women in detail and is a great storyteller. He said they have about 900 displays/sorties they rotate through. It was definitely an emotional visit reading about all these amazing service people that made the ultimate sacrifice and those that were able to return to their loved ones. definitely a place you can return to over and over
