If you're local, it's good to visit this place at least once, but I wouldn't recommend a special car trip to just get there. Also, the exhibits and the acoustics are very loud.

Quiet walk through different past military campaigns. Makes me wonder if they except a contribution from my family heritage in the military services.

This little museum is a little treasure. The veterans should be proud to leave us this history. Media is always been good to our military and anyone visiting Delaware County should visit this museum..

We have been to this museum many times with our grandson. He is now 19 and still a WW11 history buff. The collection seems to improve a little each time. His favorite part is talking with the volunteers and learning their history. It is a...More

This museum shows what it was like to have been in service during a war - the museum has authentic uniforms, weapons and interviews of Veterans who were in the battles. A educational experience for people of all ages.

We had family in from Europe and took them. It was interesting for them as well as my entire family that have lived her all their lives! Local history is a must. Take your whole family. Truly a gem in Media.
