This was a great, free museum with an overwhelming amount of history! From the outside it looks like a small museum but once you've walked around the outside grounds, which is filled with old tanks and air planes, you enter a building that is stuffed with historical artifacts that are truly amazing! This museum has a terrific collection of historical... More

My son and I visited this museum. Words can't describe it as I had chills down my spine. Never felt more patriotic! So many throngs to see from ww2, Korean War and Vietnam. Staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely must see to feel true American.

The outside is surrounded by dozens of tanks, fighter jets, and artillery that you couldn't possibly find anywhere else. A very impressive array of decommissioned warfare vehicles. The inside consists of artifacts from the wars that the 45th division was engaged in and full of veterans willing to tell their stories. Sometimes too willing. But, nonetheless, a nice history lesson.

The 45th was the Oklahoma National Guard and was active in WWII (Europe) and in Korea too. Lots and lots of artifacts, vehicles, airplanes, tanks, you name it. This heroic tradition is alive in Oklahoma and you just might meet a veteran helping staff the place. A must for military hobbyists.

The outside of this building has many cannons, tanks and planes from past military events. The building looks small from the outside, but is larger than it looks. Excellent displays of the bravery of this highly decorated group that fought so bravely in WWII, Korea and Viet Nam. Well worth the stop.

If it is hot outside, then it is best to hang around inside reviewing a really nice collection of firearms arranged periodically from the revolutionary war to Desert Storm. The outside is best left for more temperate days, but has a good collection of WWII tanks, trucks and some mid-century aircraft and helicopters.

Great experience. A lot of history. Save at least an hour and a half. Lots to see. There was a guide inside that explained where to go and what I would see,

I have been to similar museums all over the world, but none could touch the depth of this museum for the variety of historical firearms, many in pristine condition. Sections of the museum represented different wars and conflicts, here and abroad. All were well displayed and easy to follow. The 45th was the first to liberate Dachau, and they have... More

This is a museum put together very well to memorialize veterans of our wars. Awesome displays, artifacts, postings, memorabilia, and a wealth of knowledge to gain. This has to be one of the best military museums in the country. Take your time here and learn from what you see and read. Even though I am not a veteran of the... More
