Small but well done museam. We came on a field trip with the CMP, so glad we did. Really cool "spy" weapons --- guns as flutes, tire gadge so much more, female traveling case with her own pistols. Swords and guns back Ottoman Empire and earlier. I am huge sword fan, very imprssed and jelous. Very old artifacts from different... More

If you love history, particularly weapons and spy gear, you will enjoy this unique museum. It is filled with a very eclectic collection of guns, paintings, bronze sculptures, swords, and even Hitler's tea service. We had a very helpful guide with great knowledge of the collector and his items. Don't miss this museum if you are in the area!

You won't find a more extensive family owned collection of everything from Hitler's china to Bronzes by Remington - nearly all of them! Wonderful place to see history.

Excellent and very interesting. Collection of items a local business man had collected all his life. He was very wealthy and came from Germany.. His collection is continually changed out so you don't see the same thing each time you visit. It consists of all kinds of weapons, secret agent items, etc... Well worth the time to see it all....

Wow! You need to visit this museum to believe the remarkable weapon collection. Various other history memorabilia were available to view as well. I guess it took our family of 4 about 2 hours to walk thru as we didn't want to miss anything. Very well displayed. If you are in the area this is a definite.

This place has mostly military artifacts....WWII, Vietnam and etc. Good place for kids with an interest in the military. Do check the web site, but I believe you can get in on Tuesday's for just a donation. Also, next door is the Anniston Museum, which is just as interesting. Both places an enjoyable experience for everyone.

I have been planning to visit here for quite some time. I took several of my grandchildren and had a great time. For those interested in our country's history this is a must place to see. The exhibits are layed out so as to appeal to a wide variety of individuals. This museum is definitely worth the price of admission.

Proving once again that Anniston may very well be one of the best places in "smaller city" America to see top notch museums, the Berman delivers big on its offerings. They have items here you cannot find even in bigger museums, and items here you would expect to find only in bigger museums in larger cities. The design of the... More
