Along with the museums, we loved that we got to see an actual piece of the Berlin wall right outside the entrance to the museums. Also across the street are a wide array of military vehicles. My three boys all loved it!

Military Museums of Fort Leonard Wood

The Chemical and Engineer museums are full and interesting. The MP museum is ehh. The MP museum does have great merchandise -- as for the other gift shops, it's eh!
