“Wonderful people”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

I took my children on a trip to Springfield, Illinois to check out all of the Lincoln sites. My little boy is very interested in military so we stopped by. He accidentally dropped his glasses down in a display. The gentlemen in the museum and the director of the museum took 20 minutes of their day to help get his glasses. Then Stewart Reeve, museum director, took another 15 minutes out of his day to talk with my son and show him a separate part of the museum. Denver is 8 years old and his favorite part of vacation was this museum!

“Small, free, interesting museum”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Probably the only place in the world where you can see the false leg of Santa Anna. Tells the story of the Illinois National Guard. They sometimes do reenactments of trench warfare during WWI.

“Excellent free museum”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Great 1-2 hour museum. Kid friendly. Some great displays for such a small space. A few tanks and helicopters outside.
