    Perfect Size Museum for Grade Schoolers

    Reviewed 31 July 2016

    The museum is a mid-sized facility, and while it may leave adults craving more substance, the visuals given by the dioramas helped my kids (5,8) put the landings at Omaha Beach in a little more clear context. It also was the perfect length for them, in that it took us around an hour to get through the whole thing. In that way, the kids glean what they can from it without getting too oversaturated or bored with details. Children under ten are admitted free, which is good since I think they have the most to benefit from this type of museum.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    We’re sorry, but parents haven’t shared any tips about this place yet.
