The Museum covers all branches of the Military. They have uniforms and memorabilia from years ago. One of the items that comes to mind was a blow up/inflatable float belt and many many more very interesting items and letters, weapons of all sorts. The wall on the inside has all of the names of the Vietnam Vets that died, just like the real WALL in DC. I highly recommend it. A lot of reading and many many photos of family members who gave their lives and some that did not. Highy Recommend it.
