Don’t let it size fool you their collection is vast. Went with my husband( both of us are military history buffs). The museum is well organized by conflict and had many interesting artifacts. Definitely worth a visit. The volunteers are friendly and helpful.

This place was hopping! It was very busy inside, but it was full of lots of great artifacts and replicas. Anyone interested in history or the military or both will enjoy and it's free!

The museum has so much to offer it is worth the trip to come and see all the uniforms and items from wars that they have on hand, also the many books they have available for you to look at
