The New Hall Military Museum is very small, but yet formidable on its own. The most memorable thing is a model of the USS Raleigh, an early naval vessel. There are some things for kids here, so it's a nice stop for families.

This is just a small little museum nestled down an alley way. But it is mighty and has some neat artifacts. It won't take too much time to complete it, but it is worth the walk through!

It is free and right next to all the other historical sites so it is worth the quick stroll through. It showcases Navy, Army and Marines.

This small little museum is located close to the Carpenters' Hall. At first I wasn't sure if the museum was open when I passed it, but after I visited Carpenters' Hall I went back and took another look. The museum consist of two floors. On the first floor you can follow a timeline and see what happened on important dates.... More

This neat little museum housed in the building that once served as the administrative headquarters for the Continental Army and Navy is worth a short visit while visiting the nearby Carpenters’ Hall and Franklin Court.

This is an old, not-updated museum. The kids enjoyed seeing it and it took about 15 minutes to visit. It was free and worth the stop. Just some old military information and artifacts, nothing fancy, nothing modern or updated.

This place was awesome. I wish more people knew about it so more people would visit! The exhibits inside were excellent. If you are military or know someone who is, this is certainly worthwhile! The park rangers are friendly and have great information if you just ask!
