This was not what I was expecting. Bldg is new and clean with plenty of parking and restrooms. As soon as you arrive you greeted by a friendly lady. This collection is unreal. I have never seen the variety of firearms and so very well displayed. Don't pass this place without stopping

Friendly staff. Good collection of local artifacts such as native American pottery, arrow heads, etc. Unbelievable collection of guns and other weaponry from Early America to Viet Nam to modern day. And some British, Chinese and other counties. There was so many displays that after a couple of hours of looking I was only half way through the displays and... More

Lots of firearms! Very helpful staff. They knew the exact person I was wanting to research, and took me directly to the display of his firearm.

Stopped here to on a family vacation. If you like history and guns then this is a must see. They take donations($5 single or $10 family is recommended). They have Indian Cherokee history to military history as well. They have knives, swords and steins on display in sections also. Very unique! My only regret was I only had 1 and... More

I wasn't expecting much actually. I have driven by the sign on the interstate 100 times and this time my curiosity thankfully got the best of me. They've got thousands and thousands of guns. This is the smithsonian of the gun. You'd need days to study them all. I'm gonna have to come back again I'm very impressed.

There is no charge but ask us to make a donation, which we gladly did. Thousands of guns from all through history but there weren'T just guns, branding irons, pictures. It was... More

It's a great place to learn about how Firearms have been used to give us what we have. The type of weapons used to during that time frame. It a great place to see some authentic weapons.
