We enjoyed walking the grounds and were surprised to find it to be a dog friendly attraction. We did not go in so my rating is based only on the outdoor portion. The trenches in the front were done very well. It's not a terribly long walk and there are options to shorten it. It gives an overview of military... More

I went there because there was a Christmas Art Craft Fair; I like fairs. The place is well marked and the directions in the gps worked. The place is big and has plenty of parking spots!! If you need help to get to the Center, there is a person in a little car going around the parking lot that could... More

Great exhibits inside and out. Recommend a visit. And the best part is it's free. Really enjoyed the recreated trenches and army tanks.

Awesome exhibit and convenient to get to. For someone who isn't sure about the war, this is a great documentation of the stages of our military. Good recommendation

My wife and I live within a half hour of the center and we decided to spend an afternoon there. We're glad we did! It's very interesting and well thought out. Also, very informative.

The outdoor displays are something to see. Reclica revolutionary fortifications, WWII barricks, log cabins, WWI trenchs, modern fortifications.Real cannons, mortars, tanks, helicopters. Self guided tour get up close and touch. There is plenty to see inside and people waiting to help you with your questions.

This is a great place to visit for military history. It combines museum type exhibits with a few hands on activities. In addition to the inside museum there is a large collection of military vehicles and other equipment on an outside walking tour. The location also hosts various speakers for various military topics.

This was an unplanned visit as we were actually going to Hershey but so thankful that we stopped. This is a wonderful place where our rich military history comes to life. Our oldest granddaughter really enjoyed this as she loves history. The younger grandkids also enjoyed the interactive displays here. Take the time to stop here and honor our brave... More
