The museum is like Fibber McGee's closet, only neater. The Outlaws exhibit is very well done with relevant firearms and artifacts. The exhibit devoted to Mr. Davis is fine, too. But the rest of the museum is just weapon after weapon with no context. Reading the tiny cards that are essentially spec sheets rapidly becomes a MEGO experience: My Eyes... More

Even if you're not a gun enthusiast this place will amaze you. The story behind the man who owned this collection, along with the stories you'll find inside and all of the interesting things located within this humongous museum will keep you combing each row to see what else is there. Plan to spend quite awhile there if you want... More

The museum has an amazing collection of guns and weapons. I enjoyed the descriptions and history listed with each collection. Very well organized by time and brand. It was a bit overwhelming due to the shear number of weapons-even for gun lovers!

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
