So many guns, so little time

It is hard to put into words what 10,000 plus guns and historical items looks like when gathered in one place for display. Wow! This is a collection for the ages. If you can't... read more

Handicapped Veterans beware! My husband had seen the Davis Museum about 8 years ago and he was so impressed that he wanted to see it again during our trip down South last week. We drove two hours out of our way to get there and he was denied entrance with his mobility scooter. They offered the use of a wheelchair... More

It is hard to put into words what 10,000 plus guns and historical items looks like when gathered in one place for display. Wow! This is a collection for the ages. If you can't find a particular type of gun(s) to observe, you just simply haven't made the turn down the right aisle. It's there somewhere and there are probably... More

The gun collection was on display at the Davis hotel in downtown Claremore and my family made regular stops during the 40's and 50's. Every available space was taken up by gun displays, even the walls of the coffee shop. When Mr. Davis died, the collection was put in storage and an estimated 1/2 was stolen over the years before...

On our road trip south we saw a billboard for this museum...were very excited about it so planned trip to accommodate visit on way back north. Spent night in Claremore in order to visit here, and after all of this effort, find out the museum is closed for the month of January 2015 for remodeling AFTER we check in to... More

I'm really surprised at the amount of guns they do have here! There are rows and rows of different calibers, models, etc. A serious fanatic could really spend all day here. I did miss one room because they were doing a blood drive the day we visited, but I'm fairly sure it wouldn't have been a problem if we had... More

I went to this museum understanding it to be a gun museum. But it is so much more. It shows the diversity of the items J. M. Davis was interested in and collected. The history here is well seeing.

From toy guns to an army tank this modern museum has it all. Every kind of gun imaginable is displayed here along with many other interesting things. Gun's, knives, swords, ammo of all shapes, sizes, age, and country of origin are found here. I don't care much about guns and I even found this place interesting. My 10 yr old... More
