while not an extensive collection it is enough to keep your interest for an hour or so. Nice displays and arranged chronologically as you stroll the hall. Additionally the building itself is magnificent . If your touring Oakland you should visit. Veterans are free.

You need more time than we had to see all the history displayed here. It captures what our soldiers have done to preserve our freedom through all the wars that we have been involved in, and you will learn new and interesting facts.

Nice museum that is right on Pitt's Campus. Very sobering when you enter , you see how many Americans died in each war we fought. Displays are glass front. The museum was originally to honor Civil War era, but has expanded to honor all military....More
