  • Whoever did the redesign of this museum is a genius. The aesthetics and art direction of the WWI, WWII, and Vietnam sections are astounding. Bombed out French homes, dappled sunlight coming down through the trees in Vietnam. Amazing.
  • This is and has been one of the best kept secrets in Illinois. I've met so many people who have never heard of it. They just did a major renovation and it is a wonderful addition to what they already have. Would highly recommend this place ! Grounds, Mansion, Museum, visitors building, and staff are outstanding !!
  • I had a blast here i spent 2 hours in here going through a couple times they also have two virtual reality interactive areas
  • This is a wonderful museum for those interested in history and the military. The restaurant in the visitor center was perfect for lunch. The indoor museum is informative and great for anyone. The outdoor tank park is great for kids and war buffs. The gardens on the museum grounds are gorgeous. The house tour was great too! The best part: $5 entry fee per car and no other costs
  • Great museum showing the history of the Big Red One. Amazing that it's free
