  • Fantastic guided tour from Brett, it might not look like much but go there and witness it for yourself and you'll see that it's a hidden gem!
  • The WW2 Museum in Portage, Wisconsin is a must see for everyone. Brett runs the museum and he has a huge collection of rare and unique items from WW 2 and other military conflicts. Brett know the back story on all the item and I guarantee he will have many things you have not seen. I highly recommend this tour to everyone. We drove from Texas to see the museum and we were not disappointed. Great job Brett.
  • Other museums have posters to read. This museum has a knowledgeable curator who shows you the items individually and tells you their history. You feel as if you were there as events happened. Plan on spending hours listening and learning but it seems like just minutes have passed.
  • Great Experience. Brett was a treasure trove of information. Every item has a personal story attached to it. I will not forget this experience.
  • Free for Vets 7.00 or 7.50 per person Privately owned 2 hours Guided tour Wealth of information And History. Hours are Thu-Sat 10-6 (I think)
