  • This was a great showcase of WWII memorabilia and history. The layout is huge and if you can, plan more than a few hours! Some of the displays were very emotional to look at but I am glad they show....  more

  • What an incredible experience. Always wanted to go but a friend who just went highly recommended it. We went as a family of four and got to meet an actual world or to Gunner. Being able to talk to him and listen to the stories was worth the visit by itself. One of the most interactive museums I've ever been to including the 4D theater. I highly recommend that if you are on the fence and interested in the history you must go! Be prepared to spend a minimal of 2 to 3 hours to experience everything at the museum.
  • One of the most incredible museums that I have experienced and I've been to most in DC, NYC and Philly. This one is much more interactive and tells amazing stories. The staff were kind and extremely helpful. The layout made the museum the most accessible ♿ from any that I experienced. The cost of the tickets were fair and you'll spend enough time to make it worth it. We enjoyed all of the exhibits but especially enjoyed the planes and old vehicles. Our son who is
  • Amazing place. Lots of walking. Some pauses to sit occasionally. Elevators available. The Boeing exhibit was fantastic. Beautiful scenery and very well scripted. You could spend days reading everything inside this place. It’s something everyone should experience.
  • This museum is easily on of the best museums I've ever visited. Each room is vibrantly detailed that I feel like I'm a part of the action. There's a wonderful balance between historical footage, and text panels. You're immersed from the start because you're given a "dog tag" ID where you can collect digital artifacts and follow a real soldier along their historical path. It's very rare for a museum to get you this engaged. Even if you didn't care about WWII when you entered, you'll leave appreciating it so much when you exit.
  • Fantastic museum.  The "Beyond All Borders" film is a fascinating & exciting unique full multi-media (with full-sized replica props) & audience engaged event that I encourage everyone to see.  Great gift shops & restaurants.  The staff is very knowledgeable & courteous.  Finally, the American Sector restaurant is a great place for a meal.  The museum parking facility is across the street & around the corner, however, there is a public parking lot directly next door.
