We were taken here by friends to see. What a splendid museum for all to see. To see displays of our major military was very well done. Plan on at least 2 hours to see.

The volume of memorabilia is amazing. This place is filled with energetic and passionate volunteers who will engage with you as much as you want to listen. Heartfelt and informative. Well worth your time. Jim was a fabulous guide.

I really enjoyed walking through this museum! I spent 2 hours gazing at historical items from all the US militaries. If you’re a history/ military buff this place won’t disappoint. It’s FREE, but donations are accepted.

I brought a Vietnam veteran friend to tour the museum. He was a door gunner / crew chief and was impressed with the depth and content of the displays.

Proud of my city , Cape Coral, FL. As you drive over the Cape Coral Bridge into Cape Coral you will see the banners of veterans that have served our county.

What a total GEM of a place! My daughter and I visited today, not really knowing what to expect. This place started with a guy in his dining room and has grown into a huge space completely filled with actual amazing memorabilia! If you’re lucky...More

This is the best kind of museum. Here you find real memorabilia and personal stories that take back in time. You want to put this on things to do list.
