“Great museum, hope information was better marked”

Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Fort Knox
Attraction details
Reviewed September 29, 2013

great family friendly attraction
amazing exhibits
poor marking of the exhibit and artifacts. most seemed where not marked at all.
the app available for virtual experience was very long to download and once done was not well integrated. no tour the museum in order like just multiple spots where you could load something that was mostly not information about the artifact.
Could have been so much more!

I rated as a 3 due to most of the artifacts were not marked. Example: He had about 20 medals. It did not tell you what he got them for or what they were for. I find history exciting. There was a lot to see. They were changing alot of the displays and had nothing on them to tell you about them. They had an app that you could use but that doesn't help the people who do not have the equipment to use the app.

There should be more places like this. I believe they may have been in transition on getting some newer artifacts, so some places seemed a little bare. There were many vehicles missing outside that were being restored and touched up. There was a lot to take in. We couldn't get the app on our phone to work correctly, so we weren't able to participate in that aspect of it, but it was still worth visiting.

Grew up a military kid (not Army brat) & have always been fascinated by military history. There is so much to see & read. Many, many genuine artifacts & dioramas. They even have Patton's personal transport. It was particularly shocking to learn how such a great man died. If you have ANY interest in military history-this is a must see!

Really enjoyed the displays, especially the quotes by Patton. My Grandson loves hisory and was amazed at all the military vehicles and displays. Enjoyed talking to the soldier' hosts at the entrance. This is a free site and very worth the trip to honor a great general.
