I am a veteran and I loved the museum with it's display of past uniforms and weapons that were used in combat going back to the Civil War. I was there for hours it had a lot of books reiterating our military history.

Gone forever from Old Town in Sacremento! The sign is still there, but it's bare to the walls inside. I called their phone # and it rang as disconnected. Spoke to neighbouring businesses who advised it moved to San Louis Obispo.

Went with my husband, he is a huge military buff. I thought it was ok but my husband loved it so it was worth the trip.

The signage is still out on the street but sadly this is just a vacant building now.It looks to be in good repair, it's just empty with no indication of if it moved or closed or what...odd.

A small museum that gives an insight into the history of a state that joined the Union long after the colonial war period. Staff are very welcoming, helpful and friendly.

I liked the extensive display of uniforms, weapons, and military paraphernalia, as well as the specific focus on California's contributions to various military conflicts. The museum is small and will mostly appeal to military and war buffs, historians, and veterans. Of particular note in the...More
