The museum is very interesting and informative. Be sure to watch the movie! Several places we read that the walk to the Cadet Chapel is steep. I was leery of it, since I am recovering from foot surgery and walking with a cane. We asked...More

The campus is very spread out and a guided tour would have been helpful but since we went during July, it was only self-guided tours. The campus is very 1950's.

They are real strict about getting it, of course. Once in, it was like a little town. Very nice and of course very clean.

We did not use the guided tour but others did at the visitors center. There are lots of ramps but I don't know if the guided tour is 100% wheel chair friendly. The visitors center should have more information. We are... More
