I won't babble on too much about this museum because you really have to see it with your own eyes. The building outside is nothing special but it's what's going on inside that matters. There are heaps of military vehicles in this modest sized building....More

For anyone who plays the call of duty series or Battlefield you will be amazed at what they have stashed away in these storage sheds from WW2. From amphibious to land vehicles to a tank. Awesome to check out even with the kids. Great variety.
