Great visit to a local military museum
Jul 2021
A very nice tribute to our service men and women who served our country. Most of the material was about veterans from the local area but lots of things to see and many of a personal nature giving insight into the daily lives of the people involved. Takes about an hour to go through. helpful staff and free admission.

Packed with Memorabilia
Aug 2019
Dedicated in 1933, the memorabilia extended to Persian Gulf War and other wars. Manned by volunteers and admission is free.

There is no specific order or categorization of exhibits. There are names of fallen soldiers, uniforms, hats, weapons, correspondence and all in between. It is a morbid and melancholic feeling but a necessary inquest to reflect that freedom is not free.

We were blown away by the amount of items in this small space: uniforms, models, badges, knifes, machine guns, bullets. Amazing. Our 5 year old loved all the ship models. All past wars represented.

Great little military museum
Sep 2017 • Couples
Lots of interesting items crammed into this quite small museum - I could have stayed there all day. The guide was a great old boy who had seen quite a lot of service. Excellent museum. Ask about the Hanoi Jane (Fonda) poster which is used as a target in the urinals upstairs!
By the way the rest of town seemed too commercial. Not so keen on it. But the museum was well worth a visit

Many interesting memorable military items. They are always looking for more military "things". You will learn more about the military performances in the different wars.

It takes a good long while to go through all the stuff in this building. If you're a veteran, or interested in military history, don't miss it.

This museum is worth the time to see all of the artifacts from the wars and also to honor our veterans.
