An informative museum with lots of exhibits and old buildings to wander around. The musical ride is pretty good and you are permitted to visit the horses in the stables. Worth a visit.

My family and I spent several hours enjoying the many displays both inside and outside in the compound. Especially enjoyed the cadets and the musical ride. Very good displays throughout. Spent several hours here as there is so much to see. A special thank s to the cadets for a great performance. A wonderful place to visit and see our history.

We stopped in to the museum while we were in the area. Surprised at the great displays and historical significance. Then the musical ride went beyond our expectations! Having ridden with a drill team, we appreciated the horsemanship and precision training of these young people and their horses. Super job!!
