We have been to the museum several times, they have a great collection of military items from several different eras. If you are in the Athens area and you like military items then you need to visit. Great people working there and very knowledgeable.

The museum is a great place to spend time and explore all it has to offer. It is especially good for young people to give them a sense of history and the sacrifices made by young men and women to give them freedom. Take time...More
