This seemed like a small museum, but it was packed with very interesting accounts, facts and memorabilia so we devoted as much time as possible on looking around. Always a moving experience reading about the heroism in war and the military base has a very interesting past too. Free car park and pleasant garden with vehicles outside too

Had business in the area and decided to check this out. The memorials honoring different units and individuals were significant. The static displays were impressive for a small museum. Well worth the stop.

Strolling through the museum's interior, one finds interesting stories of how Camp Blanding has progressed throughout history.

Very nice setup , informative , would recommend stopping if you are in the area. They have military vehicles, helicoptors and planes on site. The kids will really enjoy this and adults will probably learn something they did not know. After seeing this it is a shame that it is not still taught in schools .

We have driven past this place many times, and the other day stopped in for a look. It is interesting for those involved with military history, but not worth a special trip.

During the second world war, Blanding trained personnel from dozens of... More

The museum has a lot of WW2 artifacts related to airborne soldiers. There is an extensive outdoor exhibit. They have additional exhibits featuring Vietnam and Desert Storm.
