  • Its in a old National Guard Building just off the main road. They fully cover all wars that New Yorker's were involved in. It takes a good hour to see it all and it has a nice gift shop

  • Went there while they were setting up for a dinner. For warned at the door some things were put away. Very informative place with some spectacular artifacts. Would love to go again
  • It's an illuminating glimpse at NY state's role in America's various conflicts. Free to all. Very helpful and engaging staff.
  • Wandered in one weekend day and was very pleasantly surprised at the size and scope of their collection. Really awesome stories and artifacts for history buffs.
  • My kids and I go to the museum every year on our way to an annual get away weekend. We've been there about 5-6 years now and LOVE it! The veterans who help run it are wonderful, helpful and so knowledgeable about every single exhibit. My kids are teenagers now and STILL look forward to the annual visit.
