I have visited the museum many times. The members are very helpful and have a lot of knowledge about the items on display. My son's Boy Scout Eagle project was completed there.

Sign on gate said closed until further notice due to water damage... Call before your visit. The tanks in the front yard look very cool but its all gated up.

Whenever we pass by the historic marker at the intersection that indicates the direction of the museum, we always say, "we should check that out some day". Well, today was some day! What a great find! We were surprised at the military vehicle collection outside. While everything was covered in snow, it was still impressive. Inside, they have well documented... More

We are photographers and did a photoshoot there. Since then we've been back multiple times. The tanks outside are super cool, but there is also so much inside!

Excellent little military museum that will appeal greatly to the military buffs out there. Not expected in a city historically known for it's hat industry. For those who know 20th century armor, they have a nice collection outside, you can guess where they got the vehicles on the surplus market with most having a middle eastern look. The exhibits and...

The Military Museum of Southern New England is most excellent. My son is a big fan, they have open turret days and you can climb into all the tanks they have and have lots old military equipment.
