My husband was a war veteran and really enjoyed this. The tour guides were all very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our tour with John Mintin. All forms of the service are represented and much history from all wars. An enjoyable experience.

Same old group escorting everyone around. Totally disorganized. Poor quality of displays. Garbage piled up around building. Electical outlets, wires exposed. Don't waste your time in St. Joseph to see this. Go to Kansas City to see the WWI museum. That is wonderful.

Loved the artifacts. Please help keep this museum open by donating when you visit. Would have to see all this go to waste if it closes.

The NMHM is a hoarders hobby place. Mr. Frank Flesher passed away and left some beautiful old buildings in decay; clutter beyond imagination and questionable funding in support of this sacred trust. I would check with the St. Joseph Visitor's Bureau to see when you...More

The museum has a lot of displays, and are constantly adding new displays and my personal favorite thing is they have 2 huey helicopters. Good place to go with children to.
