A non-profit exhibition hall dedicated to preserving the honor and memory of America's fighting forces, the Armed Forces Military Museum depicts the nation's most visceral conflicts with vivid audio-visual flair. Visitors can wind their way through the 35,000-square-foot space to absorb more than a dozen artifact-packed permanent exhibits, including replicas of iconic wartime scenarios. Revisit the beginning of modern combat with a stroll through a World War I trench, gain new understanding about life in the Axis in the midst of a German village outpost, or reenact Alan Alda's trademark video poker tactics in the replica of Rose's Bar, a Korean War–era haunt that was immortalized on MAS*H. Cyber combatants can also rattle digital sabers with a ride in the museum's Virtual Voyager motion simulator, which can immerse the senses in 10 different scenarios. The M8 ride also offers the only armored vehicle ride in the Tampa Bay Area during the three-lap course. Rides can hold three riders per trip (including driver) and appointments must be made on the following days: Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
