We came here to fill some time and ended up having a good time. The museum is well done and has a ton of artifacts and memorabilia. I learned a lot of new information. Definitely worth a visit.

Do not pass this up, especially if you like WW11 history. We had a connection because my wife's dad was on a glider and because we had a connection I gave it a 5 but if you just like history its a solid 4.
