For those that are into Military history and Military vehicles this is a great place to visit. Plenty to see and perfectly laid out. It is interesting to see not only automobiles from the World War II era but the other transport vehicles from various branches of the US military and from a couple of other countries. Plenty of displays... More

There was a lot more to see here than we would have thought for a museum beside the freeway in the Midwest. A good flow of history with some military vehicles that we had not seen before.

A veteran friend and I visited on veterans Day 2015. Normally WWII vets are admitted free, but on Veterans Day admission is free to all Vets. The exhibits displaying scenarios that are quite realistic for battle scenes.

Bigger than you think. Had some very interesting facts that we had not known. A/C on the War side would have been welcomed. The Car side, nice and cool.

My husband and I saw signs about this museum as we were traveling down the interstate and decided to stop. We were really glad we did. It has wonderful displays of war equipment and information beginning with the Civil War and going up through WWII. We especially liked the seeing the life-like forms of military leaders and the equipment used... More

We were here several years ago while they were hauling vehicles out for sale and wondered what would happen to it. Coming in you can tell the whole complex is still struggling. The American flags lining the drive are tattered, with a few missing. The decals on the two "NASCAR"s out front are faded and peeling. There are more military... More

The displays are compiled well and one can be immersed in history Admission includes both access to the National Military Musuem side as well as a collection of horse drawn vehicles and custom built automobiles.

An excellent display and informative experience. There are planes, trucks, boats/ships, trucks/jeeps, weapons and miniature displays that are very interesting. The cost is comparable to other historical museums that we have visited.

Not only did this museum offer a fantastic collection of WW vehicles, artifacts, exhibits it was very extensive and tailor made for the history buff. As an added bonus visit their automobile venue and see carriages, automobiles from movies and television along with priceless cars collected over the years. Put this museum on your "To Do" list when traveling NE... More
