One word- Fascinating! This museum is a true one of a king museum that sets the bar on quality and how items are on display. They do more than just have the name and date of the item, they tell a story that helps us know what was happening then or what it was used for. The variety makes it... More

I love the displays with all the weapons used in the different world wars and throughout time in the United States. They had everything from uniforms to silverware on display.

I had no idea what the Berman museum was, but now I think I do. My take is the Berman family decided to share their collection of treasures they’ve amassed over the years with the rest of us. The museum has unique oil paintings, fascinating sculptures, different types of weapons from around the world and much, much more. My only... More

This is well worth the trip. The museum has some very interesting items. Mr. Berman collected these items during his world travels. There are many old style weapons, uniforms and many other interesting things.

As a WWII buff, I was totally thrilled to see so many weapons and artifacts from that era. Things I had only read about or seen in books I could see with my own eyes. Imagine thier usefulness. Enjoyable afternoon trip.

Very cleanly put together. Very focused on weapons of all kinds. Kinda makes you wonder what really was behind the couple that collected these oddities. Very interesting.

Wonderful museum filled with many interesting things and simply lovely folks running it. There was so much to look at and to learn from that I had to take a breather by taking advantage of one of their cushioned seats. I highly recommend this museum.
