A hidden gem in the downtown Fresno area. With military background, you'll be humbled and amazed but it's also great for kids of all ages. Amazing history that comes to life.

Wonderful displays. Docents very informative. Ask for Jesse if you go. Items from the Revolutionary War, Civil War, WW I and II, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. Terrific information on Legion of Valor members. Ask to feed the squirrels. They are real mooches.

Place was not crowded and there were volunteers to answer any questions that you had. Exhibits were well displayed and the museum was not crowded at all. Place was clean and there were a lot of exhibits for such a small museum.

Found it to be very interesting and somewhat informative. I had visited the Museum several years before and wasn't overly impressed. However, it seems since that some great improvements have been made. For a rather small Museum, they have used the space well. Very much...More
