  • The exhibits are very expertly done and very interesting. This is a place you should visit, if you are interested in military history. They even have Santa Ana's wooden leg.

  • Small but very well organized, don't miss Santa Ana's false leg. Mannequins were not creepy which is often hard
  • Small but comfortable child friendly museum.
  • This is a small museum but full of great things.
  • Real nice collection. Staff was really nice and had lots of friendly information. My son got a dog tag made on an original 50's machine. Displays from many wars.
  • Lots to see and do. My boys love it, lots of hands on stuff, and its not so big you have to worry about someone getting lost. We love it.
