Absolutely amazing place. I wish I had more time to experience the museum. Went after my son’s graduation ceremony. Two floors, imax, gift shop, concession and many great exhibits. Excellent place to learn about our country and the men and women that defend it.

This museum is quite amazing. It is divided into sections of our military history. It has two floors. It’s not on post so it’s open to public they ask for a donation.

What a well thought out museum. The flow for visitors is excellent from the entrance up, and then the lower level exhibits are quite extensive. So glad we were able to visit. We will have to return again to see the sections we missed due...More

I was completely blown away by the scale and attention to detail at this museum. We spent about 2.5 hours there and could easily have spent at least that much more time there. Definitely worth the time.

Really a well thought out and interesting museum. The layout was easy to navigate and there was a good mixture of exhibits with text and video. The sound of soldiers marching throughout the main floor was very moving

This was an eye-opening experience. Not necessarily a surprise though. I had to leave almost immediately from this war glorifying propaganda museum. The only thing I can think of relating this too is a horrendous nightmare.

From the moment you walk up to the doors you are blown away. The grounds are beautiful and majestic. The free museum is a once in a lifetime adventure. Please give your self all day as you will need it.

WanderingBob2016 The Gulf of Tonkin incident was not false. Try studying history, rather than relying on leftist propaganda. There were WMDs in Iraq. See the 14 Oct 2014 New York Times article - U.S. Intelligence Documents on Chemical Weapons Found in Iraq. Typically, the Times refuses to acknowledge that the weapons found were not accounted for and weren't in the U.N.-sanctioned WMD depots. The Times never wants to acknowledge anything that supported the war. I helped the search for those weapons. They were there. You weren't, but they were. I was in ROTC during the late 70's. I was not allowed to wear my uniform on campus, unless we were in groups to avoid harassment and attack. As a kid, I saw the way leftists turned on our troops. They were disgusting. The war was lost in Vietnam due to a leftist Congress, not because of our troops efforts or the South Vietnamese themselves. If you have the guts, read Black April: The Fall of South Vietnam, 1973-75 by George Veith to understand why, I've read every book on the fall of the South, and it is without compare. There is no doubt that without our sacrifice to keep South Vietnam free for 10 more years, Southeast Asia would have fallen to the communists, and we probably would have seen a third World War. (You'd have to study history to know that.) McNamara quit because his plan of strategic bombing was shown to be a farce. He and Lemay were idiots. The war had to be won, as with all wars, the hard way, by infantry, supported by artillery, armor and air - combined arms. I'm glad your father and your son had the guts to serve. I've been to war several times and have lost many friends to war. I hate it far more than you do, since you never went, but I also know that it is often the only recourse for freedom and security.
