said to be the worlds largest private gun collection Mr Davis collection is now well displayed in a modern museum.

Its not as much fun for those of us who knew Mr Davis and often visited him at his old hotel and let him show us around his collection and share his vast knowledge with us. But it... read more

Its not as much fun for those of us who knew Mr Davis and often visited him at his old hotel and let him show us around his collection and share his vast knowledge with us. But it is now well displayed and much more can easily be seen these days.

If firearms are your thing this is the place to go! My Army officer husband thought this was the best he's ever seen!

This was the best place yet on our trip!!!!! Take the day to see this museum!!!! Lots of history and things to read about. I could have stayed in Claremore two days to see the museums and attractions in this town. And make sure when you're at the museum to look up, not just look at the gun cases, I... More

Visiting this museum was the main purpose of our trip to Claremore. We had planned on going on Sunday, I even called them on Friday to verify they would be open and was told yes, from 12:00 to 5:00. We arrived at 12:00 (along with a few other cars). The sign on the door indicated it opened at 1:00. Don't... More

This is an incredible firearms museum. This museum fills the bills as the largest private firearms collection in the world. Every kind of firearm you can image as to pistols, rifles, muskets, antiques..etc. Throughout the museum there are guns of "famous" people.. as in "bad guys". It is free but donations are very much appreciated to keep this gem open.... More

Very interesting place but very overwhelming. Things are not well organized and I felt I kept seeing the same guns in many different cabinets. The place is free but they strongly suggest a donation. After about 90 minutes we agreed we were starting to get tired and left.

This is a great collection of guns. We took our two grandsons, they love history and they loved the collection. Its not the best place for babies- too much glass- but 5 and up- will enjoy -

This museum has much more than guns, so it's great for everyone. The diversity of artifacts was astounding. Well worth the visit. Leave at least an hour, but you could spend all day easily.

This is a must visit! It's huge and has so many guns, knives, swords, and other collectibles that you could spend all day here and still not see everything. From muskets to modern weapons, this museum has it all!
