A great museum devoted to the 101st Airborne. The displays were filled with numerous artifacts either donated to the museum or collected from the nearby battlefields.

So glad we visited this place. A warren of different rooms full of interest! We even sat through a bombing in the basement, very realistic, loud and scary with the lightbulb moving during the rumbling. Came out of there feeling very thoughtful. The staff are...More
