Visited the museum this past summer while vacationing in Florida from Michigan. Expected to find a mediocre display of artifacts. Was blown away by the many excellent displays and use of technology. The variety of exhibits and the documentation was superb. The displays were presented in a way that are interesting and informative to a wide range of ages. Staff were well informed and helpful. It was a great experience!

This museum is truly a hidden gem. It is extremely engaging and definitely delivers an incredible experience. Many of the areas have oral histories and other recordings, which truly bring history to life. The amount of artifacts housed is mind boggling. And when I heard all the vehicles were fully restored and maintained in operational condition, well it blew my mind. We are talking a Sherman Tank, a Stuart Tank, even a Patton Tank. Also is the M3A1 Scout Car, and M16 Half track (which looks like it just rolled off the show room floor) and a countless number of jeeps and other vehicles. Add this to the extensive collection of rare and interesting artifacts and you have one incredible educational experience. And don't leave without riding the WWII M8 Recon Vehicle they have. It is worth the cost.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It would be nice to have more displays on our more current conflicts.
