  • As a Marine, I was still VERY impressed with this historic and accurate memorial to the brave men who defended the region against the Germans. I just happened to visit on the 75th anniversary and was so very impressed with the museum and folks who worked there. Being a "Band of Brothers" fanatic, this was a very emotional day for me which will last for my lifetime!
  • Absolutely awesome experience. Staff is super friendly. Museum is very clean and modern. Storyline through the eyes of 4 characters is brilliant. Loved it.
