Make sure to visit the museum's park and see some T34's Tigers and many, many cold war tanks and aircrafts. The walk amongst these vehicles by itself is well worth the visit.

The outdoor part of the museum is comprehensive but a bit run down; the grounds are great, but the military equipment is not in the best shape. Don't expect shiny and new, but everything is well labeled and laid out nicely. Inside, they have a...More
