"The site is a beauty!"
Denise O'Connor

Your Museum's website has been for me an amazing surprise . Not only by the way it is organized that permits us to imagine the richess of the museum patrimony, but also for the donations that have been made to it by families of disappeared fencers, or by old (not so much old) excellent fencers, like some friends of me like Carl Borack , Allan Jay, George Kolombatovich... that offered pieces that were certainly precious for them. And, I underline that too, by the young generation of  American fencers, world and olympic champions, as a contribution for the promotion of the old sport that they have chosen. You have made a superlative fencing museum and an enormous contribution for our ancient swords sport. Thank you !

“… what you have done with the museum...prodigious!”

“I took the tour of your museum online. It is fantastic! I can’t wait to see it in person. ….This is wonderful inspiring work you have done. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg. Once people see this..there will be interest for a World Fencing Museum….I think there is a museum in France somewhere but they need to take it online as you have done for us. You are leading the way.
Thanks for your efforts to preserve our fencing heritage.”
