What You Can Expect
The train is a lasting symbol of military transit of the wartime era. As you ride to one of the other collections, imagine the plight of WWII soldiers as they went to war. Disembark at the Campaigns of Courage collection, where you get the American soldier’s eye-view of the war through 360-degree displays of key settings and dog tag stations with story points. Continue to the US Freedom Pavilion for a rare look at preserved war machines and a sobering walk through the galleries that honor American servicemen. Don’t leave without participating in the Final Mission: USS Tang Submarine Experience, a thrilling interactive tour one of the most successful WWII submarines (included with your ticket).
Next head to the Solomon Victory Theater for a complimentary viewing of Beyond All Boundaries, an epic 4D wartime documentary produced by Tom Hanks. Relax and enjoy the approximate 50-minute showing that includes first-hand accounts of life in battle and on the home front.
Explore the museum at your own pace, stopping to browse genuine artifacts, engage in savvy interactive displays, remember fallen soldiers and take needed snack breaks (own expense) in the American Sector Restaurant or the Soda Shop.
Excellent tour, very detailed and somewhat graphic. Tom Hanks commentary was great.
Great museum, lots to see. You should allow most of the day to see everything and take it all in.

The 4-D movie is spectacular.
Wonderful experience. The 4D experience was amazing. I will go back again, in fact I became a member. Would highly recommend this museum to be visited.
THE MUSEUM IS FANTASTIC. IF YOU EVER GET A CHANCE BE SURE AND GO. A FIVE STAR.
My husband and I loved it. A wonderful facility and great learning experience.
A great tribute to the generation that fought with honor to preserve our freedom.
This was by far the best part of our trip. The movie Beyond all Boundaries was a true masterpiecethere were tears shared by more than just myself and gave you a small taste of what these brave men and women went through during WWII. I see why the museum is rated so high and hope to get back someday.
Extremely interactive and visual
It was great.
