Ansel M. Stroud Jr. Military History and Weapons Museum
The Jackson Barracks Museum has aircraft dating from World War 2 to Desert Storm, and an assortment of things showing how life was lived as a United States soldier through out our history. According to the American Heritage website they have "a unique collection of war letters, diaries and personal mementos to help round out the battlefield experience." so if you are interested in the price paid for our freedom on different fronts and different eras this is a great place to visit.
There are no fees and hours are 8 am to 4 pm during the week, they have an air park and high tech theater among other things to do during your visit.
