  • ABSOLUTE MUST! Enjoyed the many vehicles and collections the museum offered! I’d definitely pay to visit again. Definitely would visit again and spend more time reading about the vehicles. The place looks small on the outside but it’s huge!

  • Nice museum and it's free! Interesting items on display and volunteers tell some of the history. There's even some of Hitler's items there. Teenage daughter enjoyed the visit too.

  • It covers more then just the 45th infantry division. It tells a great story of history and war. So many great things to look at and learn about. If you have time and love military history, then go!

  • The people here are amazing! They walked me through step by step what I wanted to say on my brick for my great uncle and when I placed an online order they sent a personal note. They have an amazing collection of firearms here!

  • If you are a military or history buff this museum is a must see. Admission is free and you can easily spend all day browsing. The museum is relatively large with both indoor and outdoor exhibits. I will deffinately come back with more time on my next visit.
