  • Good coffee. Warmed Lemon tea cake with cream was home made and delicious. And the display in the museum was interesting, very well presented and extensively equipped with memorabilia. A must see if in the area.
  • Return visitors - always something new. Friendly knowledgeable volunteers - fantastic tribute to our Vietnam Veterans. Easy disabled parking and entry with elevator inside, loan wheelchairs and even a motor scooter. Reasonable entry fees.
