  • Very impressive. The people that work there are very knowledgeable and helpful! Definitely worth the trip!
  • Nothing that will blow you away, but they have a good selection of models and books. There are some pretty cool presenters that will come in some weekends and let you hold a gun or grenade.
  • For a somewhat limited space, they managed to contain a lot of intricate displays with great interactivity. Kids will probably love it, but I go by myself to really explore. The volunteers are all very nice and helpful. I love seeing what this little museum has become through the years.
  • Lots of good displays. Worth stopping. Free admission.
  • Great place to take kids to learn some history!!
