“Wonderful Military Museum off of the beaten track”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012

Visited the Military Museum of N FL run by a couple of VERY dedicated retired Marines. What a gem this is. Rather small and appears to be soon out growing its building. Full of very interesting antiquities from all of the conflicts our great country has encountered. The museum is free (but feel free to leave a generous donation) since these folks do all of the collecting, catalogueiung and exhibiting on their own time. Green Cove Springs has a real gem in their town, glad I took the detour to take a look.

“A well run interesting museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

This has been in existence only for a few years but is evolving into a quite engrossing and interesting museum, run by a a board of directors composed of patriotic businessmen from the area and has no paid employees.

There are exhibits and artifacts from before and including World Wars I and II, and after, all well set out in various places, both indoors and out.

It is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Surprisingly Great Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

To be honest I was not expecting a great deal out of this museum as it is in the small town of Green Cove Springs and is not highly advertised. To my surprise this is a great museum which traces U.S. military history over the past 250 years with most emphasis on World Wars I and II. Lots of interesting write-ups, photos, war memorabilia, uniforms, weapons and vehicles (to include even a landing craft). Highly recommend it for a nice 2 hour visit, especially since it is for free (donations accepted).
