This is a historic landmark and memorial dedicated to honoring and supporting all who have served in the military since the Civil War. The collection has been assembled through donations so it is somewhat eclectic. If you don't have an interest in the military or...More

while not an extensive collection it is enough to keep your interest for an hour or so. Nice displays and arranged chronologically as you stroll the hall. Additionally the building itself is magnificent . If your touring Oakland you should visit. Veterans are free.

The amount of time is up to you. If you just walk through and not stop long enough to read the history but just take a browsing look it will take about a half our or so. But you could spend all day if you choose to.
