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

I have visited this collection since it was a dusty display in the old Mason Hotel. The building it is now housed in gives it the showcase it deserves. If you like history, firearms or just seeing interesting things, you should enjoy the collection

There is so much history in one place! Love how there is so much variety for everyone who visits! My fiancé who is a gun aficionado was so excited and was able to give detail on most of the weapons there. I personally like the display showing the different weapons, nooses and other items from specific "bandits" and other outlaws... More

My husband read about this while planning our road trip. We went and loved it. Even if your not into guns there's so many other items. We actually went two different days.
