We had the best tour here. Chuck gave us a one on one tour. He was full of knowledge and interesting stories. He spent so much time with our family. They have neat artifacts and displays. Would definitely go back.

This is an nice museum. However, there is a limited space and a small amount of displays. It is small and well kept with a friendly staff.

Smaller in size, but great in volume. This museum has an excellent assortment of the Armed Forces history over the years. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful in answering questions. It is FREE to enter, and well worth contributing to the donation box.
