Came here recently with my son and a couple of his friends, have been here multiple times. As a museum, this place is very underrated, as their displays are very informative and interesting, both indoors and out. The tanks that are outdoors are very interesting and fairly well preserved. The Nazi display inside is very interesting as well, especially the... More

My wife and I looked online before visiting to make sure this place would be open when we planned to visit. The sign on the gate states that the museum is open from 1 PM to 4:15 PM on Sunday – the gate wasn’t open at 1:30 PM. Very disappointed that nobody bothered to open up the museum that day.... More

There's not much to add to other reviews other than confirming this museum covers a large segment of military history, is super organized inside and on the grounds, and if one is fortunate to hit it on a sunny day like we were, it is a great experience…a little hard to find at first, but well worth the trip.

I was able to visit this museum this week and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. It has numerous outdoor static displays of aircraft, tanks, artillery and other motored vehicles. Inside is a wealth of things to see primarily regarding the history of the 45th Division but also other military interests that have ties with the state of Oklahoma. I also found... More

My son is a WWII history fanatic and he LOVED this museum. There are a lot of memorabilia including actual tanks and airplanes that made his day. Admission is by donation.

My wife and I really enjoyed our visit. The museum contains a wide variety of U.S. and global weaponry and equipment from many different eras, which was fun to see. But it also contains large numbers of photographs of the 45th during different wars and training periods that were very illuminating. It's easy to forget those were men, not fictional... More

I am a history buff and love visiting the smaller divisional or local history museums. The 45th Inf Div museum surpassed all my expectations. The exhibits we comprehensive, with enough detail to give the context and also enough exhibits so you are not just reading. The Bill Mauldin exhibit could have used a bit more explanatory text to explain his... More

If you are at all interested in military history, this is a must see museum! The gun collection is worth the trip just on its own and there are many more interesting things to see. The staff is very friendly and are well informed about their museum. We have been to lots of museums of this sort and is definitely... More

The 45th Infantry museum allows visitors to get up close & personal to tanks, artillery, personnel carriers and aircraft. The military weapons collection is very impressive!
