I liked everything but we went on a Mon and it was closed and too cold so we took pics from the car. My son loves that kind of stuff!

This was well worth the stop! It's all very nicely done, displayed, organized and the volunteers were great! They were very proud of the museum and very knowledgeable about its contents. They'll walk around with you and point out the highlights of the museum...your own museum guide! :) There were two display cases of items from Hitler's Various homes. That... More

This is a well-organized museum which provides a specialized insight into the 45th Division's history which will surprise you. My husband who is retired military never misses a stop here when in OKC.

I don't know where to begin in describing how incredible this collection is. The story of the 45th Infantry is plenty of interesting and this museum is full of amazing artifacts. Of course, people are (rightly) wowed by the Nazi collection which includes some of Hitler's personal items. But there is plenty more to digest. I have been going off... More

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.
