The museum holds more than 2,000 exhibits honoring those who served in all branches of the U.S. military. Exhibits include sculptures, murals, historic artifacts, art and 1,000s of memorabilia covering WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and other 20th Century conflicts. The walls of the museum are lined with more than 500,000 names of those killed in action from WWII forward.
The museum is home to one of the world's largest war memorial bronze sculptures: 50 life-size soldiers storming a beach; each statue modeled after an actual combat soldier from each of the 50 states.
Many of the exhibits contain unique artifacts and recount personal stories from our veterans. This is an educational as well as emotional experience.
