This attraction is extremely good if you’re into America war history. These excellent exhibits remind us of the ultimate sacrifice men and women have made in the past for our freedom. Check it out!

It was neat to see this liberty ship. We were able to see a lot of the engine room and it was insane to see how big the pistons in the engine are! Wish the gift shop would have been open though.

We were disappointed, but maybe we did not understand the history, it was busy though. Only go if you are in the area.
