Not on the beaten path but very informative with facts and accurate displays. All parents with teen agers and younger would do well to stop and educate a population that have no clue what our seniors did to preserve our freedom 75 years ago.

We enjoyed our stop at The General S Patton Memorial Museum. As we get older stops like this are very worth while. The museum is modest and the presentation are not wow inspiring but they do inform you about the importance of this WW 2 training ground. I would recommend a stop for all WW 2 history buffs....
Interesting museum inside and entry only $6. However if you don't have time, or are visiting after hoursthere is still a lot you can see - for free. The war hardware is in the yard, all well signposted. And near the vehicle entrance arr some Leonardo da Vinci models - Catapults and the like (see photos)

There is a wide array of firearms and soldier's gear that was... 更多

In a dusty patch of California desert is an amazing collection of WWII memorabilia, along with a lot of items from other... 更多

Lots of WWII displays & artifacts with a short video indoors. Many Tanks from the period as well as a few from Viet Nam era outside. Makes for... 更多
