  • I had the opportunity to visit this museum for the first time yesterday, and it was pretty neat. They had a nice collection of weaponry ranging from swords and maces to guns, cannons, and bomb sell casings. They also had interesting exhibits on West Point's history as well as on some American history as well. A gift shop showcasing some nice items is also available to peruse. If you're in the area, it's worth a visit. Admission is free, but there is a suggested donation.
  • Full of rich history. Construction in front of museum required a detour to front door but we'll worth it
  • My favorite place to take people that want to understand the importance of West point in the history of our country.
  • The best place ever to learn about this country's military history. A must see.
  • Excellent museum on American military history. Free admission.
