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

A small museum. The exhibits in the building takes about 1/2 hour but they do have some unique items like the Goliath remote control bomb and a "tankette". The really good stuff is the parking lot area filled with old tanks, trucks, cannon, and armoured cars (mostly unrestored and "as is"). Many of which you can climb on and even... More

This museum is great , why aren't there more people here . I guess it's because we visited during the week and not on a weekend . My wife and kids are not military buffs but they are interested in history so we all had a good time . Plenty of free parking and other museums near by . Don't... More

Great day trip for young and old a like.Check their web site for Open Turret Day and other events before going. The Danbury Fair Mall is right down the street and there are also some good restaurants in the area.

The indoor exhibits were nicely presented, but the outdoor area could use a little sprucing up. Some of the vehicles looked like little more than refugees from a scrapyard.

Right in the front yard! Plus a good collection of military memorabilia. Definitely worth an hour of your time.
