This museum has compiled an astounding array of military vehicles and other articles primarily from World War II, but from other wars as well. 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

We took tons of pictures and my teenage girls were amazed and excited to see everything this museum had to offer, I recommend EVERY... More

There are actually 2 museums in this building. One is the military museum and the other is a automotive and carriage musuem. I'm basing this review only off of the military side. It's impressive. There is no other military museum in the area like this one. I have been to the South Bend and to the Volo, IL museums recently... More

We enjoyed visiting this museum. It had a lot of very interesting military vehicles that are seldom seen in a museum setting. However, the museum suffers from trying to be more than it is. They should focus on military vehicles from WWII, Korean, and Viet Nam Wars which is primarily what they have. Exhibits on antique guns and the Civil... More

This began with Washington and Lincoln to Vietnam. The various vehicles together with the personal stories was a great way to show the history of our nation. Enjoyed this exhibit.

This was well done, with many exhibits and historical artifacts. We learned a lot about World War 2 at this museum, its worth visiting if in the Auburn area.

Although the museum had liquidated some of their exhibits earlier in 2013, they still had plenty to see and experience. While all of the exhibits were impressive, I was particularly awed by the one about Civil Air Patrol. I've been a lifelong CAP member, and even I learned some new things!
