Soldiers' Memorial Military Museum
This museum preserves a wide range of military artifacts in the memory of fallen soldiers who served in the United States military. Featuring artifacts of all branches of the military, Soldiers' Memorial Military Museum serves as a constant reminder of what these men and women sacrificed for their country. This memorial museum has space to accommodate school tours and veteran and groups, and is open to the general public as well. It also offers programs to assist and raise money for homeless veterans.
Highly recomend for students of history, kids and grandkids, so they do not forget the price their parents and grandparents and great great grandparents paid for freedom. Exhibits from World War I, WW II, Korea, Viet Nam,and the recent Gulf Wars. See large portraits of Missouri's Black Jack Pershing, WW I Commander and Edward O'Hare, a Congressional Medal of Honor Winner from St. Louis for whom Chicago's airport is named. It is across from City Hall, but be prepared to pay metered parking or walk a distance from a paid garage. You can burn thru a lot of pictures if you the time. Look at the memorial to POW's both in the exhibit and the painting made by a WW II POW and its defined meaning.
I'm in the military, and was interested in what the museum had to offer. I took my daughter along for the ride, and she was absolutely amazed at everything they had on display. She was full of questions, and I was glad to answer them. The staff is very helpful, and it is an awe-striking museum. An absolute must see for Military history buffs.
A fabulous Museum that is often overlooked in a City known for its Sports teams. Don't miss an opportunity to take a tour with the Superintendent Mr. Ralph Wiechert...he is extremely knowledgeable and can tailor the tour to your interests.
