On the recommendation from my nephew we drove 3 1/2 hrs. to Pontiac to visit the Route 66 Museum and the Livingston County War Museum.
I've been to a lot of military museums and this museum per square inch has more information fit into it then any I have visited.
When you first walk in you are overwhelmed like a drill sergeant screaming in your ear at the crack of dawn. After making a quick pass through the various rooms I caught my breath and started over again wanting to take in as much information as possible.
The collection of history is amazing and the hour that I spent there does not do it justice. I could have easily spent three hours by myself taking it all in.
You will find items and testimonies from all different military campaigns and a lot of unique items which will make you scratch your head and wonder how the heck did somebody get this back to the states. The Japanese Machine gun is one such example.
A veteran offers his take and provides a lot of information on a short tour if you'd like.
This museum provides something for everyone from the serious military historian to average lay person. Excellent for students.
Interesting story in the small room at the top of the stairs before you enter the main room on the left.
In this room there is a lot of WW1 history items, take a look at the pictures on your left on the wall, there is an image of an eagle, statue of liberty and some other things, look closely at the pictures and see how they were created and the uniqueness of them.
There is also a long ribbon in a frame to the right of the window, ask the veteran tour guide about this. You will be amazed!
