Miracle of America Museum

This place is stunning in its sheer size; I was speechless around every corner. It definitely has a particularly rosy point of view about America -- the kind of point of view people cling to. The museum founder is a war veteran, and this is his view of what he fought for. He's not wrong in his memory, just one-sided. As history, it has its place, but don't expect to be pleasantly surprised about its inclusiveness.

The museum has an antique gun smithing shop and a recreated World War II Army Air Corp bomber barracks. Snoopy's plane swooped through the clouds in Spring 2019 and is now tethered out front.

What a surprise! There is so much to see, outside and inside, everything from political buttons to actual cars, airplanes, and helicopters. Small old-town stores are outside (the chiropractor was interesting, and so was the beauty shop). Kids are free to touch many items. You could easily spend hours here.

Filled with tons of stuff...some interesting some just stuff. Interesting couple of hours to wander through it all. The displays have a dose of "John Birch" type political comments spread throughout.
