If you like history, this museum is full of it. The displays are really unique. For those who are less of a gun enthusiast it does get a little repetitive. But you will see lots of things that you never see any place else. It is well worth the time to see it.

An AMAZING number of guns at this location, I can't believe the number of times I have been on Route 66 and have never stopped here. Can't go wrong with the price of admission as it's FREE. They do have a donation box when you come in and suggest $5 a person, you can't go wrong for 5 bucks! Stop... More

10,000 firearms--the largest privately owned collection of guns in the USA. So, if you're into guns, you'll enjoy this place. There are some political buttons and artifacts, a display of movie posters (mostly from John Wayne movies), saddles and some model trains too, along with a little gift shop. Along old Route 66, this museum is an unusual one, although... More

You can spend all day here and never see everything. The not only have guns, they have swords too. They only take donations so the price is whatever you want it to be. A great place to see history for yourself........

I took my 2 boys here, 4 and 8. My 8 year old LOVED all the different and interesting guns. My 4 yr. old loved the trains. I loved the Outlaw's section. This museum has a little something for everyone. And the best part....it's free! There is a donation box, and I was so impressed that I contributed gladly. Lots... More

This place is hugh. If you like guns you need to come here. I especially loved the section with the depression era bonnie and clyde exihib as I am facinated with outlaws. I have been there several times and will probably go back several times.

Huge collection of guns from all over the world - covering a large period of history. Clean facility - much larger than we expected. No fee charged - donation only.

If you like weapons of all ages and from around the world this is the place to visit. Not only are the guns and other weapons but the museum included many items that would interest those not caring to see such. There are many advertising posters for a wide variety of areas, from movies to the sales and savings bonds... More

This museum doesn't look that large from the outside, but when you walk inside, you can't help but be awestruck. I am not a big gun fan, but we went for my husband and son-in-law. I was amazed by the number of all types of firearms. It was truly amazing that someone could accumulate so many types of firearms. Must... More

This museum is awesome. I spent almost 4 hours there. They have around 13,000 guns and a lot of other things to see, well worth your time. When you think you have seen the whole museum, you haven't. How this man ever accumulated this many fine firearms is beyond me, I have to wonder just how many millions the collection... More
