National Vietnam War Museum Weatherford, TX

This start-up museum has already accumulated some interesting artifacts including a  UH-1 Huey and a 34-ton Vietnam-era landing vehicle tracked (LVT). The founders have also erected a  half-scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial and have landscaped two contemplative gardens. Don’t expect a lot of pizzazz here but do come if you want a quiet moment remembering the events of 50 years ago.

Hours:   Daily:   9am – 1pm
