  • Had a good time not much to see really but what there is nice got some pics which was ok a nice way to check out the military stuff 
  • All the people profiled in the museum are from Michigan. Currently they have 150 displays, but have enough for 700, so they rotate displays every so often. They are trying to raise money to build on. ...  more »

  • I absolutely love this Museum , it is not the largest , which makes it personal . The staff are so very knowledgable about the history it covers and more. You may observe at your own pace , not be " dragged through at their pace " . I have been there more than once and am going tomorrow with a " WW2 Hero friend of mine ! " . I look forward to a very special time. My interest in the history of WW2 goes back as far as I remember. My late father , 1ST. LT. William B. Firman was a Navigator / Bombardier in a B 24 flying 39 Very Dangerous , Top Secret night combat Missions over occupied Europe . His unit , the 801st. Provisional Bomb Group , flew night lone plane missions at very low altitude ( 300 to 400 feet ) and at low speed , attempting to find , not a city , port or even a large building . Their target was three colored lights about the same as a flashlight in rural , France , Belgium etc. ,They were part of the Eighth Air Force Composite Command ( Special Operations Group ) and worked closely with the OSS ( Office of Strategic Services ) considered to be the impetus for the CIA , The British SOE ( Special Operations Executive ) , and the Various Resistance Groups of occupied Countries. My dad's service prompted me to learn as much as I can about the " largest most deadly war in history and this Museum is an " open book of knowledge for all mwho desire . It will be enjoyed by the curious all the way to the historian wishing a new source of information. Most certainly gets a 5 Star Rating !
  • Great place to visit to see a great part of Michigan's military history. $7 for adults $3 kids. Guides give the kids a bingo card to find things around the museum. Lots of information and a view into the past. Must see for everyone. Guides are very knowledgable and friendly.
  • One of our country's greatest treasures! From the largest national collection of Medals of Honor to the uniform of an Apollo 1 astronaut to the most diverse collection of "Polar Bear" artifacts, it is worth a visit no matter what the distance!
  • Very interesting. Learned alot .
  • We visited the museum on 6/30/2013 in the late morning with a few others. Ben the museum guide gave an amazing and very educational tour of the exhibits. We were very impressed by his knowledge and narration - he gave a very detailed and respectful presentation on each hero and made their life story and sacrifices come alive.. We enjoyed our visit and it was one of the highlights of our Frankenmuth We suggested better publicity and advertising so more people will know more about Michigan's military history and contributions.
