National Infantry Museum

We loved this museum (including our 12 year old son)! We spent 6 hours learning about our infantry and the impact they have made shaping our country. You could breeze thru just looking in a couple of hours, but if our military is something that interests you, definitely schedule at least 4 hours. If the theater is still showing D-Day, consider that a must do!
