Large museum dedicated to Veterans of the Second World War. The account of the various conflicts are well described with video testimony, photos, etc. The officials did not hesitate to talk about the collateral victims of these atrocious conflicts and the participation of different American ethnic groups. Have a good visit!
I enjoyed the museum very much! All the exhibits were up to date and pretty interactive. Clean and well kept. Friendly staff and very quick. This place will take more than 4hours to walk through! Parking structure is located on the south side, however, I just suggest to take a taxi or other ride share to get there.
One of my favorite historical museum is huge and have many things to learn. Even when they are on works they figured out to keep offering a excellent service. I loved the videos and the D-Day section. When I visited it there was a place that you can talk with WWII survivors and that was an awesome experience. It’s not a really good museum for kids (
