This gem of a museum houses one of the nation's greatest military collections from complete sets of museums to Sherman tanks. What is even more impressive is they have converted a bunch of warehouses into the dark trenches of France in WWII to the flight deck of a Japanese carrier striking Pearl Harbor to a bombed out French village.\r
The museum uses of voices of real Tampa Bay veterans to describe Iwo Jima and other events. There are tributes to Tampa Bay area servicemen - not plaques but full figured presentations. Your kids will be amazed at the size of the vehicles and scenes.\r
The museum is always growing - the Desert Storm/Iraq area is not completed, but there in the middle is Saddam in his REAL general's uniform staken from one of his palaces.
