I highly recommend this museum for the whole family. It is extremely moving and covers WWI through the Gulf War. You are especially moved when you enter the WWII room with the 400,000 names of those who lost their lives in that war. The employees are very nice and there is a gift shop that you will enjoy looking through.

This is a great place to spend a couple of hours. It flows well and has many great displays. Made me so proud of the backbone of this country that have kept us free from those that would enslave us. I teared up a few times reading the stories of individuals posted thoughout the museum. All the displays are static which is why I only went with 4 stars. It could use a little more modern interactive A/V type of displays, but still very much worth the time.

This is a truly unique and quite moving museum saluting the Veteran's of WWI to the present. Each war's vets are honored in a different room. The names of all of the deceased are typed on the walls of each room. When you enter the WWII room it is simply overwhelming. When you look at all those names covering every inch of wall space available, it's just unthinkable. The artifacts on display are also quite interesting and unique. They have a small gift shop with some very nice mementos and reasonable prices.

My husband had just returned from a year long deployment to Afghanistan when we visited the museum. I found it to be very interesting and humbling. This museum was just the right size, and you could spend hours reading everything. I would definitely recommend visiting here.
