This is an extensive collection of military vehicles (primarily), but with plenty of other one of a kind military paraphernalia (from George Washington to George Bush era's). Interesting mix from all branches -highlights include General Patton's custom jeep, German tanks & halftracks, a huge painting of Hitler, and "model" Navy ships used (they are huge) for a Hollywood production. Plan... More

Took my great grandkids, they didn't want to go at first, I told them we would just see the Batmobile and then leave. They were loving it from the minute we went into the "Cars" entrance. Keep up the good work

They have a lot of history there. It seems a bit empty in spots because they have to get the displays around, but what they have up is nice

My wife, toddler, and I decided to head down to Auburn, Indiana, to check out the National Military History Center! It is right of I69 and is extremely easy to find! I used Groupon and for two adults it came out to be $11 dollars! Should have cost $20, thanks Groupon! Daughter was FREE, which is always a plus! By... More

Allow at least 3 hours to see this attraction. Mainly WW II.The exhibs could be labled better so younger people know what they are looking at.

Visited the National Military History Center with a friend from England. Enjoyed the military displays. A very large hall with nice displays using guns, vehicles and manikins. Some rare vehicles on display. They are adding more material all the time we were informed. Right off I-69. The admission covers both this and the car museum in the same building.

This is more than a war memorial. It also has cool cars from the Casper collection. I took my grandchildren despite their protests and had to fight to get them to leave. In my opinion, it is the best attraction Auburn has to offer. Advice - brush up on your history. Kids will have a LOT of questions. I learned... More
