Along with excellent examples of just about every firearm used in America since the Conquistadors and Pilgrims, it also has prototypes from John Browning, an 18th century gunsmith's shop, a 19th century gun factory portion, and much more.

Anything you want to know about firearms is probably here. Only about 40% is displayed, so it will likely be different on your next visit. Incredible staff.

You don't have to be a gun-nut!! There are 5 museums under one roof, each one has a flavor all its own. We went in the facility at 8 AM and left when they were turning out the lights. The Firearms Museum itself could be a day of wonder. The Indian Museum is humbling...look...really look and study the life of... More

We toured this museum as part of the Globus National Park Tour. The amount of guns and types of guns on display is unbelievable. Very interesting and I am not into "guns".

Amazing display of weapons from shows to the real life westerners from the first weapons to the current. I've never seen a larger display of weapons from all over the world.

Dizzy array of firearms types, history, makers. Easily over-whelmed so go back a couple times. Other museums of art and natural history are in same building so move around.

This place is just amazing! 3,600 firearms on display, some dating back to the 1400s. They are arranged by type, manufacturer, time period, historical event. Unfortunately, we only had a short time there, and as others have said, you could easily spend several hours there. I'll be back, next time for much longer.

I never knew so many guns existed and that they were so innovative for the time period of some of them. This was VERY interesting, even if you aren't a gun enthusiast. WELL worth the visit!
