Due to financial issues the museum has been closed since late winter. Kind of sad as there was nothing like it in the area. Word was they were trying to locate family members to return memorabilia and donate the rest to other museums.

Great museum and interesting military equipment on display. Unfortunately the museum went broke recently and now has been closed for the last 2 or 3 months.

By now the Museum has closed and what a shame. I hope someone has stepped up to buy it and preserve a part of history that future generations will know nothing about.
