Evansville Wartime Museum reviews
I really liked this place, I hope everyone takes a trip there to learn about the war and Evansville. This is the type of thing every town needs.

My husband is a vet and many members of my family. It was great seeing the contributions from Evansville.

I have touched on my father's wartime experience only a small bit. He chose to never speak of his experience and I respected his feeling. He passed in 1999 and my interest has piqued some in these training years. Finding he was radioman on a B-24 in WWII. Searching, I found 3 airworthy B-24 Liberators, these located in the USA and maintained by groups. Finally deciding I would like to really get into a Liberator, whether airworthy or not, to see and feel as close to what my father experienced in training. I located the Evansville Wartime Museum, as they had one of the B-24s on display, Diamond Lil, based out of Texas. I purchased tickets for a 30 minute flight, which included access to all of the museum exhibits. The following day, the B-24 flew to a new location for similar tours. I will tell you that everything was professional, well explained and all managed by an army of volunteers. The flight and additional time in the plane was just amazing.
This is a great Evansville IN history lesson. We spent over 3 hours on a guided tour. You can go at your own pace but the guide we had was Topps! His name was Leslie Bryan. Most everyone here are volunteering. I saw thing from when I was a kid here. It really opened my eyes to how the war impacted everyone and everything in Evansville. It was $11 per person. But there's a lot of discount for first responders, veterans, gold star family and more. Call for an exact price. This would also be a great experience for the younger generation. Much better than the movie's ever showed.
