The museum has over 2000 rare military artifacts and filled with hundreds of exhibits and murals honoring all branches of military services, campaigns, major battlefields, industrial defense and the enduring support of the American people. The hallmark of the museum is the world’s largest war memorial which is a 70 foot long, 15 ton bronze sculpture, consisting of 50 lift-size soldiers storming a beach. Each figure is modeled after an actual WWII combat veteran, one from each of the 50 states.  Names of the men and women who died during the wars line each of the 5 great halls including the names of the over 500,000 U.S. soldiers who were killed in action in WWII.  Touring the museum is a powerful, emotional experience..
