  • This place is amazing. Even if you are not a history buff, you can appreciate this guy's massive collection of memorabilia from WW2. My husband loved it. 
  • Call ahead for times you can go here. Extraordinary collection of WW11 items and expert tour guide available 
  • If you have any interest in ww2 this is a must see museum. Superb collection. Unique artifacts. Make sure you allow enough time to visit. If you get out in less than three hours you'll feel rushed.
  • There are items in this museum that will both take your breath away and make you mad. It has a stunning array of antiquates that are unprecedented for a museum of its size. Please go there ,you WILL NOT BE DISSPOINTED
  • I am going to enjoy the virtual tour and put on my wish list after retirement. I am a Navy brat, did a little work years ago for the Navy, and particularly missed hearing out on the speaker on the USS Phenakite. I am pretty sure the Art Foundation with the Raise the Sachem Campaign would really, really love to hear from anyone who served on board.( The ship is a mess but still 113 years old. It escaped from the ship breaker before they could cut her up. Check out Madonna's "Poppa Don't You Preach" video) Anyone know where to find parts for 1936 Packard diesels?
  • Absolutely amazing! The amount of history on display was unbelievable. The personal artifacts, variety and quantity of items was so awe inspiring. Very moving and humbling experience. Cannot say enough! Thank you!
  • The collection in this museum is Stunning! They Have EVERYTHING! Look at the virtual tour on the web site for detailed information. One thing is you can Handle a lot of this stuff. We were allowed to actually encode a message and then decode ON A WORLD WAR 2 ENIGMA MACHINE! Are you kidding? Hands on, Marvelous. Most of the weapons (except handguns) can be picked right up and tried on for size, you can actually get an idea of what an Sturmgewehr 44, assault rifle 44 felt like. That is considered the first assault rifle made. Same goes for Thompson submachine gun, M1 Garrand, just about any long gun from the war. Although you cannot pick them up, the 50 caliber, 30 caliber machine guns are displayed in the open on tripods, you get an idea of how they actually felt.... and we have not even mentioned the sherman tank, private papers of FDR, Churchill, Hitler.... A collection that has to be seen! This place is the BEST!!! I am GOING BACK SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
