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!

Stop here if you love GUNS! The best and largest collection of Firearms I have ever seen. From pre-civil War to modern Automatic weapons. Some used by both famous lawmen and famous outlaws. Great for History Buffs.

It boggles the mind that a place, outside an armory, could have so many firearms. Now, a few years after the passing of Mr. Davis the collections are no longer just his. Others have donated to the gun collections, military apparatus, western supplies, it just goes on and on. The staff was very helpful, helping us with rain issues on... More

This collection is the most amazing collection ever. Not only guns but shackles, handcuffs, knives, saddles, memorabilia from outlaws and law enforcement. Stein collection, hand guns, long guns. We were suprised to find that J.M and his wife are actually buried there. We were visiting family that were born and raised in a nearby city and they had never been... More
