Hadn’t been here in at least 15 years. It’s undergone some expansion and was all very well done! Highly recommended.

There’s so much there I need to go back. They focus on what the war was like at home and overseas. They Have a Tank!

This particular museum is amazing! It reviews WW II from the Homefront point of view. The collections and exhibits are very well organized and it gives a glimpse of how life was here at home while our boys were fighting. Worth every penny!!!
