Displayed are vehicles, uniforms, mementos and artillery items spanning time periods from the Spanish conquistadors to the more current Desert Storm. Included are the Korean conflict, Vietnam and the Spanish-American Wars. Interesting exhibits include a diorama depicting an underground escape by German prisoners of war, and an Army helicopter used during the Vietnam War. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.
