Fodor's Review

The original of this reconstructed 1790 building briefly served as headquarters for the U.S. Department of War. On display are Revolutionary War uniforms, medals, and authentic weapons, including powder horns, swords, and a blunderbuss. Dioramas depict highlights of the Revolutionary War, and there are several scale models of warships and frigates.
