while not an extensive collection it is enough to keep your interest for an hour or so. Nice displays and arranged chronologically as you stroll the hall. Additionally the building itself is magnificent . If your touring Oakland you should visit. Veterans are free.

You need more time than we had to see all the history displayed here. It captures what our soldiers have done to preserve our freedom through all the wars that we have been involved in, and you will learn new and interesting facts.

The amount of time is up to you. If you just walk through and not stop long enough to read the history but just take a browsing look it will take about a half our or so. But you could spend all day if you choose to.
