Small but very interesting museum. The owner is very proud of our military veterans. I am retired USAF. I appreciate their efforts and dedication.

There is a lot of information in this tiny location. The cool thing is there are veterans there you can talk to and ask questions (and thank for their service)! I highly recommend this museum.

We stopped in after have a great lunch in the Village. The museum is loaded with artifacts and paraphernalia. There were two ex military personnel there to enhance your visit. A great place to visit.

The Military Heritage Museum has quite a few items from past Wars in history. The volunteers are quite helpful and the visual items are quite interesting. Plan on spending at least an hour to walk thru and view everything. This museum is free but they have a donation box, should you like to contribute.

This small museum contains a wealth of memorabilia, most of it donated by local military personnel and their families. It is well displayed and the "docent" on duty was friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit.

This was a very interesting site to visit. They had uniforms from various branches of the military. There was memorabilia from the various wars. Also descriptions on different activities that went on that we didn't know happened.

Free to go in but what a priceless setup of historical times in military culture. If you are a war or history buff you have to go to fisherman's village to check this out. It's the first thing you see when you walk in on the left.

The Military Heritage Museum reminds us that history is all around us. Well represented is the stories of local veterans from colonial times to the War on Terror. Of particular note is the staff of veterans who tell their stories as you visit the exhibits.
