Don't think this is a regular museum, when the owner will start telling you about their collection she won't stop anymore. Very nice museum and very grateful owners. Never met such people before. We will surely come back to visit this museum again.

We had a day trip to this museum and it was soooooo worth it. Especially if you are USA military. The couple that privately owns this are very passionate, knowledgable and proud of their work. Beautiful!!

From the moment you step into their home, Marcel and Mathilde Schmetz make you feel like you are part of their family. By the time you leave you realize that you truly are a family member, because you both live in a free country. Freedom...More
