Hurry and get to Natick to see this wonderful Gem of a little Museum before it goes to Washington DC. Went with the bus Group and everyone was impressed with the significant collection of rare documents photos and uniforms from the Second World War.

We spent over 3 hours at the museum and just barely touched the surface of the collection. The admission price is well worth the experience. We cannot wait for the new expansion.

The museum tells the story of WWII from several perspectives, American, British, French, German, and the Jewish experience. It is a moving experience and one that should not be missed.

Having been to a score of World War II museums on three continents, I can say with some authority that this out-of-the-way gem off RT 9 Natick Massachusetts is extraordinary. The curator, team and docents have created a wonderful way to experience the war from...More
