There is a lot of history to explore regarding horses. We had the museum to ourselves so we were able to take our time. Most exhibits are self explanatory but a couple informational signs would help.More

Some very interesting and eclectic exhibits about the Horse Soldiers and Marines. Docent was very excited about the subject and knew her stuff. Looks small but is packed with interesting artifacts presented in a compelling way.

Excellent collection of WW-I Uniforms and medical equipment. I wouldn't make a long trip to visit this place, but if in the area it's worth the visit.
