Unless you have a consuming interest in Army history, don't bother. The museum is mediocre, and the outdoor area isn't worth the time to get there.

We had a great time feeding the ducks, geese, and peacocks. The deer were chilling in their enclosure so we didn't get to see them as much. Great family outing if you have base privileges.

The grounds inside the quadrangle are beautiful with deer, peacocks, and ducks roaming peacefully. The museum itself, has many interesting objects and was an educational place to visit.
