National WWII Museum - plan to spend a day here!Flag review
We were shocked by how big this museum actually was. We kind of tacked it on to one of our days, so only arrived in the afternoon. We wished we had planned a whole day around the museum. Typically, kid and museums don't really go together, but ours loved this one! We started with the movie, which may have been a mistake as the movie is very graphic with photos of casualties, etc. I'm not sure our kids realized what they were seeing, but I wish we had known or realized beforehand the graphic nature of the film. They both loved walking through the exhibits. They particularly loved the World War II and Sports exhibit in the lobby of the entrance building. Of course, they enjoyed seeing the various guns and life-sized planes, as well as the period costumes in the gift shops. Be aware that there are multiple buildings to go through, and they are building more!
Tips for Families
Just be aware that the movie is somewhat graphic, with pictures of casualties, etc. Plan to spend a large portion of or a full day at the museum, as there are multiple buildings and plenty to see. Though we didn't visit it, there is also an on-site restaurant. The gift shops (and there are a few of them) are filled with unique items like period clothing and items.
