Was in Cape Coral for business and asked my son to come along. He spent almost 3 hours at this museum and loved it. Great WW2 exhibits. Definitely worth a visit! And as a gift to all, there is no admission fee!

This is a place every Veteran should visit. Run by Veteran volunteers with lots of stories. We were surprised by a free lunch to Veterans during our stay. We spent 3 hours trying to take in all of the exhibits from every US conflict period.

We were taken here by friends to see. What a splendid museum for all to see. To see displays of our major military was very well done. Plan on at least 2 hours to see.

The volume of memorabilia is amazing. This place is filled with energetic and passionate volunteers who will engage with you as much as you want to listen. Heartfelt and informative. Well worth your time. Jim was a fabulous guide.

I really enjoyed walking through this museum! I spent 2 hours gazing at historical items from all the US militaries. If you’re a history/ military buff this place won’t disappoint. It’s FREE, but donations are accepted.
