Review on Trip Advisor

“We enjoy visiting small museums and we're delighted to find this one! The full name of this museum is the "Greatest Generation" World War Two Museum. It was founded by a couple originally from Belgium whose parents had experienced the ravages of WWII. They amassed an impressive collection of uniforms, arms and personal items for display in the museum. One particular item was a rifle with one of the earliest night vision scopes. The uniforms are worn by mannequins with each mannequin having a unique face, head and hands created by the owner. The mannequins are very realistic!
