Trench time.

War Weapons, Trenches, Obstacle Course

We all learned something about our service men and women. So much to do -- we spent 6 1/2 hours. Take your time and see and do everything. It is big and worth your time. It has a cafe for drinks and food.

Chopper display.

Army Heritage and Education Center

Many of the outdoor displays have informative plaques that contain personal insights about the men that operated those machines in wartime. It seemed to give more "life" to what is written on those plaques.

War Weapons, Trenches, Obstacle Course

My ten year old was educated and entertained. The employees were informative and pleasant. They accept donations, but the cost is free -- mind boggling! I would pay to enter.
