Overall Rating:

Great experience. Would recommend a guided tour. Beautiful views. A great blend of the past and the present. You get to see current day training as well as artifacts from the history of the United States of America. I didn't know that cannons that fired the first and the last shots of the American civil war are on view on the campus!

Overall Rating:

Would be 5 stars but lots of paperwork required just to get on campus. Got a chance to visit and the visitor center wasn't open due to a fire alarm. keep in mind the center is only open until 4:15. We did manage to get a guest pass which takes paperwork to get on base and visited the Cadet Chapel, Catholic Chapel, Jewish Chapel. Very beautiful campus. Keep in mind must be a US citizen or you have to take tour bus.
