This is a bit of history from the "Greatest Generation". Yes, this is a small museum but so full of history. Many of the B17 crews trained here during WWII and some even gave their lives while training to protect our freedom. Most of the base no longer exists but if you have a good imagination you can picture many... More

During WWII, there was a staging base for B-17s on the outskirts of Halls. Memories of those days are collected here. Beautiful well thought out exhibits, A jeep, other military equiptment and uniforms. But this museum emphasizes the human side of war on the home front. A tiny town like this contributed so much to the war effort. That is... More

For a rural museum, this one is a must see. The stories and exhibits are entertains and educational. We took my father who was a WWII vet and they honored him with a medal and a thank you on the spot. As he has since passed away, that is a cherished memory for us.

This is such a wonderful place that has honored our veteran's of wars. I love to hear of the history of the base and the people that were stationed there or served in the wars to defend our freedom. There is a lot of history in this museum. The volunteers that staff it are very knowledgeable.

The museum is on a historic sight where a legion of B-17 airmen trained during WW II, out of sight of enemies on the coasts. The museum contains lots of personal memorabilia from local vets, from several wars. This uses local names and events to link national historical events, a useful teaching tool! Maybe folks from outside West Tennessee may... More

This is the place to visit in West Tennessee to gain insight into the sacrifices made by airmen flying B-17s in WW2. Great assortment of WW2 items, original artwork from Dyersburg Army Airfield. Don't miss the Norden Bomb Site storage lockers, WW2 history and the annual airshow. This museum is worth the visit.

The staff is great. The museum is on the former Dyersburg Army Air Base that trained B-17 crews during World War 2. If you are looking for a personal experience with WW II this is the place for you. The museum has great artifacts for its size. A great day trip on the way to Memphis or going North. Well... More

This is the very place where so many men trained to fly the B-17. The annual air show is worth the trip, but make sure you visit the museum.

The Veterans' Museum at Halls is first rate. Though it is small, the museum has expanded to nearly 9,000 square feet, and it makes for a pleasant afternoon of learning, and/or remembering our people in uniform. The museum is located on what is left of the old Dyersburg Army Airbase. (The name may throw you, since Dyersburg is about 12... More
