This privately owned museum richly reflects and honors the honorable - a labor of love. Brian, who was volunteering while I was there, was welcoming, informative and interesting. I highly recommend this museum (but don't follow your GPS which will send you way to the other side of town).

Was surprised to run across this at the mall. They have an excellent display of Medal of Honor history. They really need a bigger facility and in a location where it's visible to the public.

An amazing history lesson in our nations top military award recipients. Ironically it is located in Chattanooga, TN where the Medal of Honor's first recipient is from. Awesome artifacts, interactive displays, and the curators are extremely knowledgeable. Wish there was more space for them.
