Really interesting! Get to handle some of the artefacts, and the personality of the curator is infectious!

Like others have said, this is more of a personal collection than a museum. The “tour” was more of a passionate soap box performance about weapons, that seemed to lack organization and structure. Also, upon our entrance, the tour guide/owner was pretty rude. Many of...More
