I have spent a lot of time chaperoning 8th graders to Washington DC, so I know museums, and I know good museums. Today I saw one of the best I have ever seen and it is literally 10 mins from my front door.
The American Heritage Museum in Hudson, MA is a treasure hiding in the middle of nowhere. If you are into military history, especially WWII, it’s a must see. There are so many tanks and vehicles, and the set production is first rate too.
