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!

This museum has a lot of military history exhibits and vehicles that are a must see the only thing they don't have that would make it better is aircraft

A lot if the stuff has been sold off due to hard financial times. What remains is still worth a look. I wouldn't drive out of my way to see it, but if you are already in town go take a look.

Some displays have already been removed after being auctioned off, and about half that are left are marked for sale. What was left was worth the admission price, but I'd recommend calling before traveling any distance to see to confirm it is still open. Rommel's command car was gone for example, but Patton's was still there.

This is truly a hidden gem of a museum and none of the brochures or web sites does it justice. There are military memorabilia including trucks cars tanks uniforms and more not only from US troops from World War II but Germany, Poland, France, England Japan. You could spend an hour or a day, but either way, it is worth... More

The other reviews are on target. What a great place to spend some time. If you are ever in the area make time to drop in and spend a couple of hours. Only a few others there when we visited so we had the place to ourselves, but as we were coming in an older gentleman was coming out with... More
