“Exhibits need a little TLC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The indoor exhibits were nicely presented, but the outdoor area could use a little sprucing up. Some of the vehicles looked like little more than refugees from a scrapyard.

Right in the front yard! Plus a good collection of military memorabilia. Definitely worth an hour of your time.

“Great for Military modelers + History Buffs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I stopped in for open turret day,after attending AMPS military model show.It was open turret day and a lot of fun to climb on the equipment and examine it up close.The inside also had an impressive display of equipment and models.It is a shame the vehicles outside are rotting away,probaly not enough funds to maintain them.There were also re-enactors present that day and they will pose for pics.

“Great place for history!”

I took my 11 year old boy and some friends to this museum, during summer hours kids are allowed to climb the tanks, I heard that this may change soon so call before you book your grup visit.

“For the military fan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The hardware is interesting, and includes some of the Military's odder efforts, such as the Gama Goat (if you know what a Gama Goat is, this place is for you). It's well enough done that a significant other should be willing to join you.
