My interest was primarily in the WWII participation of the 8th Although the museum covers more than that. The context of the 8th within WWII is explained very nicely. The videos are well done, and there are interactive displays.

My son used to love to visit this place while I was homeschooling him and while he was in private school. It's huge, lots to learn, very detailed, and the exhibits are well-kept.

I loved my visit here. The museum is bigger than I expected and the amount of information about world war 2 was more than satisfactory. The docents are great and really know their stuff. Well worth the price of admission.

They have a variety of exhibits and knowledgable volunteers. While there are a few planes on display, the museum focuses on the men and their missions. The volunteers in the research center were very helpful regarding information on my father-in-law's service and unit.

The only sign we saw for dogs were service dogs for the blind. Did not see any signs for emotional support animals and we did not see any on the premises.
