It is free and right next to all the other historical sites so it is worth the quick stroll through. It showcases Navy, Army and Marines.

This small little museum is located close to the Carpenters' Hall. At first I wasn't sure if the museum was open when I passed it, but after I visited Carpenters' Hall I went back and took another look.

The museum consist of two floors. On the first floor you can follow a timeline and see what happened on important dates. Each year that is represented has an item behind the glass, like and old sabre or an old hand grenade from 1781.

On the upper floor the exhibition continuous. Well worth a visit.

There is no entrance fee.

This neat little museum housed in the building that once served as the administrative headquarters for the Continental Army and Navy is worth a short visit while visiting the nearby Carpenters’ Hall and Franklin Court.

This is an old, not-updated museum. The kids enjoyed seeing it and it took about 15 minutes to visit. It was free and worth the stop. Just some old military information and artifacts, nothing fancy, nothing modern or updated.

This place was awesome. I wish more people knew about it so more people would visit! The exhibits inside were excellent. If you are military or know someone who is, this is certainly worthwhile! The park rangers are friendly and have great information if you just ask!
