Frankly, it depends on their interests and their maturity. Agree with many of the other answers - it is not a hands on museum; it is filled with story boards. But the museum is filled with much history and great displays of historic battles, uniforms, weapons, munitions, vehicles, and much much more. Have been their twice and recommend taking the kids

We took our grandsons, ages 11 & 12 and they enjoyed it. Older kids will get more out of it since they have more context to put things in. The Fat Man bomb will be a big interesting thing to a 7-year old, but mean more to a 17-year old who has some clue to how WW II ended. Absolutely take the kids.

Yes, very. Plenty to see, and plenty of changing scenery to keep the little ones attention.

If the child requires a hands-on experience or an interactive environment, I would say no. The museum is about viewing artifacts and reading information boards, If you read my review and view my pictures you will get a good idea of what to expect.

If you mean in terms of being able to see your children 100% of the time the answer is no as the museum displays on several floors and often displays are compartmentalized in a room. If they are fascinated by every imaginal military weapon and other cool thinks they will love this place.
