  • A beautiful and moving museum showing the history behind the Purple Heart medal as well as displaying artifacts from recipients. The main museum lets you browse its archive for known recipients and there is information on how to add additional veterans to the database. There are areas dedicated to each military branch. There is also a Revolutionary War encampment area that shows period housing and military artifacts including demonstrations from period actors. A must visit for any military family, veterans, and those interested in learning more about sacrifices have been made to keep freedom in place in the United States through selfless service and sacrifice.
  • This place is great and you should visit if you are in the area. The displays are great and the grounds are beautiful to walk around. One can learn a lot visiting here of the sacrifice others have made for our freedoms.
  • Wonderful. A don't miss. Angered by the youngster below who obviously had no clue where she was or what she was visiting. The Hall and its grounds are a gem. It's a shame more people don't know about it. More children should be made aware of the sacrifices my father and probably others in her family made so she could review the local pizzeria! History is not for all but hopefully more were reached. Hopefully more school groups get the privilege of visiting The Purple Heart Hall of Honor and it's grounds!
  • I went here for a school field trip and it was just really boring. The only part I actually enjoyed was when someone shot a musket and lunch...
  • The museum is lovely and informative, filled with memorabilia ranging from the revolutionary war all the way up to our most recent military engagements. Built on the historical site of a revolutionary cantonment, the premises also displays several buildings from the early days of the U.S.. Informational plaques dot the landscape providing snapshots of history while friendly and knowledgable staff perform re-enactments of different common tasks of the times. The main building houses a gift shop, museum, and the Purple Heart archive, as well as a miniature theatre constantly showing a short video about the history, importance, and meaning of the Purple Heart, a prestigious medal awarded to service men and women injured or worse in the military. Well worth the time of the avid history buff or any individual interested in some of the finer workings of the United States and its military history.
