There is also a second museum that has a large collection of unique carriages and vehicles from movies/ tv shows ( mostly 80's ) . We did have a... More

Guns? Check. Jeeps? Check. Tanks? Check. Airplanes? Check. Uniforms? Check. And from all sides of most any conflict.

Interesting if you are a military buff, but I just thought it was ok. It is in the same building as the Kruse Automotive & Carriage Museum, which is cool. So all around not a bad deal.

Two museums for the price of one. The military museum is excellent, any history or military buff would like. A lot to see, so leave yourself plenty of time. The car museum housed in the same facility was a great surprise, lovingly restored carriages and custom cars by Carl Caspar, even the Batmobile.

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
