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!

This is an excellent museum for those interested in military affairs and especially WWII. Where else would you find a mirror from Hitler's bunker, his personal copies of Mein Kampf, and silverware. Unbelievable such historic items from WWII are to be found in a free museum in Oklahoma City. Outstanding and informative displays. A must see in Oklahoma.

Well done and thought out displays. Many unpublished photos. Good static vehicle display. We were there during the week and were the only family on the grounds. Very close to the zoo and Railroad museum and not far rom the Cowboy Hall of fame

This museum was on my "has airplanes" list, so we stopped. There was construction on-going outside, so we were told to go around to find parking. No problem. Inside were a couple volunteers who pointed out a few things and asked where we were from. Then an older gentleman walked in from another room and without even asking began to... More

We added this stop to our trip because it had good reviews on TripAdvisor. It turned out to be a great decision. We ended up spending a couple of hours here. The workers were so nice and willing to answer all of our questions! I couldn't believe the volume of artifacts and they were all so well maintained. Even if... More
