This is an active military base so you have to go through all their processing to get in. But it is free, historical and has two museums.

We stopped here with friends. It is free but you have to stop before entering, fill out a form and get a badge printed with your picture. Then you can get in for free. There are a couple of good museums but our favorite is...More
