  • Stopped in with 3 kids and had a good time. As a army retiree of 21years it was a joy to see lots of people visiting. Lots of stuff to see and more is to come. Very clean and super friendly! the kids had a fine time! The M60A3 would be even better with the 50 cal and 7.62 mounted. This was a good tank and the fourth M60 series tank. Needs some TLC though- thank you for the fine museum
  • What a cool little place! Lots of interesting military artifacts on display, as well as a P-38 Lightning, an M60, and a real Congressional Medal of Honor. Well worth the price of admission. The Heavy Metal tour only really lets you look in the cockpit of the plane, which is neat, but not exactly worth the extra money unless you're feeling generous.
  • I've been driving by here for years on my way to and from the Boundary Waters, and it finally worked out for us to stop. Lots of memorabilia about the all-time leading American fighter ace, including his plane or one of the same type. Well worth a visit.
  • It's a wonderful place. Its program with the Duluth high school is great to see. I'd like to see more programs like this
  • Laura was amazing, we told her we were trying to explore the area for cheap/free since we just moved in. She gave us all kinds of awesome suggestions and didn’t rush us out when she realized we weren’t paying customers
