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.

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!

Perfect for military historian buff. You get to climb or enter some of the tanks and armored vehicles! Best $8 spent ever!

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. Inside they have lots of military information and lots of real displays. It has to be the largest collection of military vehicles inside... More

On arrival we were given a booklet listing all the outside exhibits, some of them looked a little battle weary in the snow that partially covered them but this only but this only added to the authenticity. Back inside the voluntary helper Phil (it is good to remember the Museum is staffed by volunteers) gave us plenty of information on... More

Spent a very happy 2 hours in this very interesting museum. We planned to arrive during "open turret" day which is when they open the gate to let everyone climb, look into and touch all of the tanks and armored cars, etc. My 11 year old thoroughly enjoyed this. Inside was a small, very tidy museum filled with posters, photos,... More

Very cool! We went to the Military Museum of S. New England on a Cub Scout visit. Never knew it existed, but once we got there, we found lots of old miltiary trucks and tanks for various countries and wars....who knew? Inside was also very interesting as they had a number of historical items some dating back to the early... More
