Free (but deserves a contribution) and a very interesting place for all ages. The all volunteer staff is very in to all aspects of the place and many have unique insights into the stories they tell. Recommend a visit to see something interesting.

There is information and stuff from the revolutionary war all the way up to today. Most of it is WWII and later, but it is a great visit for history buffs. Usually a couple of "experts" walking around ready to tell their story.

What a wonderful organization, run by volunteers, who have given their lives to the protection of this great country.. every young person , under 40 needs to visit this place, to better appreciate the sacrifice of others, to give them the freedoms they currently enjoy.

I visited the Cape Coral Military Museum for the first time today. All I can say is, "WOW!." It is located in a former grocery store and the museum has donated military items form all the major wars including the Revolutionary War.

Visited for the first time. Very warmly greeted. Access is free, but donation gladly given. A surprisingly large amount on exhibit, starting with the Revolutionary War. By far, largest exhibit is on World War 2. Many interesting things. There are guides throughout to answer questions....More

I am not really a war buff or Vet, so It is hard for me to explain, but anyone who served for our County. I highly recommend that you visit and support the Museum.
