This is a small museum acquainting everyone with the rich militiary history of Boalsburg. Mainly about the Ist and the 2nd World Wars. A memorial wall is dedicated to the e valiant soldiers. Exhibits outside and inside are informative and well preserved.

The History of the 28th Div was very good but it lacked a lot of military equipment on the grounds. There could have been more information on the history of the grounds that the Museum sets on.

Lovely grounds with memorial statuary. Small but interesting displays. Small gift shop. Kind of wheelchair accessible -- the floors aren't flat, but they're navigable. It was a quick walk through.
