“small place with lots of stuff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

Place is small for a museum. But don't let that stop you from going there. I was in the area and decided to see for myself. From the outside it looks like a used car lot for military equipment. But once you go inside, you will see that alot of work went into this place. There are alot of artifacts and models. The tanks outside are rusty. You can actually go in them every last saturday of the month. So I will probably go back. Price is reasonable at $6. I was told that if the mechanic is around, he could probably give you a ride in one of those armored cars. The good thing about this place is how close you can get to a tank.

“excellent place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2010

The military Museum of southern New England is a great place to go. it is fun for the whole family and for military enthusiasts. they have great exhibits with the real old wood manages that look more realistic, not the wax ones. they also have real WW2 vehicles and tanks and they allow you to go on them. but be a little careful because there a little rusty. they also have a great gift shop with replica toy tanks that really shoot and have smoke pour out the back like a real tank. this a truly a wonderful museum to go to to learn something and also to be amazed by there exhibits which have real WW2 guns on display.
