Visiting this museum is like taking a walk through American history. From the military memorabilia to the exhibit markets, it allows you to have a peek back in time. The setup is great as you glow from on space to the next without missing anything.

We camped at the nearby campground and rode our bikes around the fort. My kids completed their Junior Ranger badges. The museum is small, not overwhelming for a family. The staff is very friendly. Highlight of our trip.

It was a fun stop. Not just the museum, but the fort, the beach, the bay and the base in general were all interesting little bits of American history.
