Great place to visit. We were told at the gift shop that they're getting ready to do a big renovation. I checked the website, and some of the tanks are being restored.

Lots of history to be told about Fort Knox. New and improved displays since the tankers have left. Will be back.

So this museum is undergoing serious renovations because it's being moved to Georgia. Here's what you see now - two rooms, one with some Patton memorabilia, and the other room is beyond useless unless you're into ROTC leadership stuff. 20 minutes was all it took, but it is free, hence the 3 stars. If I paid to see this, I'd be livid, but I've also been to numerous WWII museums in France and Germany, so my expectations were high.

History is always interesting! Previously visited the museum several times with visiting friends and family, and would have rated as excellent. But the last visit had very little exhibits. It seems all the big exhibits with armor have left. Small, but nice exhibit on Patton remains. It would be much better and would entice more visitors to get back at least some of the tanks and large exhibits...

Almost all of the armor that used to be parked outside has been removed as armor training migrates to Georgia. This was always one of our favorite parts to look at when we visited, but the remaining indoor exhibits are still very good and this is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

The indoor portion of the museum is divided into two main sections: one half dedicated to Patton's life and the other half, which houses an ROTC exhibit.

There is also a good sized gift shop to pick up some Patton souvenirs or other military themed gifts.
