Has a section focused on some German and Japanese material which was different. Really enjoyed our... More

An excellent museum, but it is a bit somber if you have had a family member serve in any of the services. So much information and so many personal stories. I did enjoy it, very much.

The Veterans Memorial Museum not only provides the visitor with information, but also is very humbling. You will be overwhelmed with all the memorabilia that is on display. The detail to each and every artifact is amazing. This museum will take some time to get through, so plan accordingly. If you don't have a great appreciation for our military men... More

This was ok, maybe a work in progress. Lots of photos and uniforms. I thought it was not worth the price of admission.

If you are a veteran, a must see, and a discount for vets and group. Honors all of us vets and will make you feel appreciated for you service. If not a vet, go see as you will have an idea what we all did for our country

I went there during Veterans Week, and there were interesting visitors telling their true life stories. I found it quite interesting that there were different rooms for the different wars. I kept thinking that it would be really nice if it was bigger and there were more artifacts that people could contribute to the museum. There was a lot of... More

I can't understand how I've waited so long to review this museum for quite simply it is one of the finest I have ever visited; I say this not being a Veteran or an American but someone from Ireland.
