  • Really well done Museum. on a par with the Patton at Ft.Knox. Vets - sign up for the honor group and get free parking from now on. 
  • A very interesting museum with interactive displays representing the military history of the first infantry division. I was really impressed with the walk through exhibit that makes you feel as though you really are in the middle of combat. There are actual tanks lining the path to and from the museum that the kids can climb on for fun. #CitiExperts @Localguides
  • Experiencing the First Division Museum at Cantigny, 1s151 Winfield Road, 1s151, Wheaton, IL 60189 personally is quite amazing to see what our troops experiences would've been like. I'd like to encourage everyone to take the time to go through all the exhibits and also tour the tanks displayed outside of the main museum building as well.
  • Great place for anyone. Very educational and hands-on interactions of movies, props, and stages of war of battles with real life scenes. Lots of guns, shells, tanks that are outside which you can climb and let the children play on.
  • A superb, thorough museum, stuffed with informative exhibits, interactive elements, and super-helpful staff.
  • So much history here. Love it. Definitely going more often with my kids.
