A little difficult to get to but worth seeing history. Volunteers have done a great job of setting up displays covering all combat eras. Free but donations appreciated.

We found this wonderful little museum on the internet and decided to visit. It's on a base so you have to provide some identification. Small but informative. We enjoyed it. Take your time. It's worth it.

Being in the military I feel like I have a good understanding of our military and the history of different battles. That said the museum taught me a few things and the displays were well put together and informative.

This will not disappoint. Good collection from Mexican times to current day. Fascinating display about the German prisoner of war camp that was here and the German "Great Escape". Puts the history of Arizona nicely in context. If you are trying to get in you...More
