  • This is a truly wonderful museum of 20th Century Wars memorabilia. I do not mean War is wonderful, for it is not, but how they have set this up is so well done and such a tribute to our fighting men a...  more »

  • This is a wonderful museum. I went with my father, retired Army, and we were both very impressed with the exhibits. The staff was kind and helpful. There were a lot of memories for my father. Benches and water fountains throughout. Wheelchairs are available. Definitely a five star visit!
  • What a great collection of memorabilia from all branches of The Armed Forces, some dating to back to Civic War Era. Much is privately donated. Seeing Sadam Hussein's military uniform, the only one on display in the US (if I remember correctly)was kinda surreal. So many amazing artifacts and it's truly humbling! A place that shouldn't be missed if anywhere near the area. THANKS TO THOSE THAT GAVE ALL AND THOSE GAVE SOME ... Your Courage will not be forgotten in this home.
  • Amazing!! Who would have thought that the boots of the first guy that ever landed on Normandy would be on display in Largo, FL? Every exhibit was fascinating and of the highest quality. Walking through the trenches of World War I, flying a fighter plane in the flight simulator, or just imagining life during each of our wars was educational, entertaining and historically accurate! Take a tour with Frank! He's an historian, patriot and a Marine that has defended our country. GREAT guide!!
  • went there on a field trip with the kids and the artifacts were pretty neat especially when they tell you that 95% of them were donated by 1 man who started that muesum. Our tour guide didn't seem to have much patience for the kids and didn't really explain things in their terms, but at the end of the day my son thanked me for taking him he enjoyed it anyway. Also there was a "re-enactment" they called it but they only dressed the part and again spoke in adult language and the kids were lost on that too but they volunteeer their time to come and try and educate so I do thank them soooo much for that!!
  • Finally made it out to the museum today to check out the awesome displays I've heard so much about! Yet I was disappointed and left within ten minutes because there was some sort of kids science project display going on from one of the local schools, there were kids running around everywhere, their boards were blocking the actual military artifacts and I could not pay attention to what I was doing because I was afraid one of the kids would run into me! The actual museum itself looked amazing and I will be back to see it during a less busy time. Today is Armed Forces Day and I don't think it was appropriate to have their showcase during what should have been a peaceful and somber afternoon in a beautiful museum. Hopefully they will reconsider hosting those types of events in the future...
