The history things were under construction with the moving of things to Ft Benning but they were working to fill in the gaps.

First of all, Tripadvisor's title for this place is totally wrong. This museum is now called General George Patton Museum of Leadership. It serves as a museum and as a training facility. The tank collection that used to be there has been moved to Fort Benning, Georgia. So this is no longer a tank museum at all. As of September 2013, the museum haven't totally been completed. Outside it has but inside, there are a lot of empty spaces, many exhibits without any sort of notation of what they are. Its still a work in progress.

People who are interested in George Patton should come here. The crown jewels of this museum are Patton's personal items he carried throughout his life. His toys, his first personal razor blade, his sabers, his West Point football uniform, his well beloved ivory handled pistols, his staff flags, his medals, command car and all that. The collection of Patton's personal stuff are impressive. And Patton's command car which was wrecked and restored. That car accident cost Patton his life there after. So if you are Patton lover, this is the place to go.

For tank lovers, there is one Sherman tank, one M47 Patton tank, M10, Priest and one German Stu IIIG inside the museum. There are five armor vehicles outside the museum and one piece of artillery called "Little Bertha". Not much!

There are few other odds and ends....like the fire engine that was at the Pentagon on 9-11, vandalized portrait of Saddam Hussein and few weapons, NVA tire sandals (look comfortable) and few more.

But overall, I knew where I was going so I wasn't totally disappointed by the changes. Museum is geared around George Patton.

No tanks anymore! This place sucks compared to before when they had tons of tanks! My opinion is that before the remodel it was much more educational.

I used to take children there every few years. They used to have tanks, helicopters, armored vehicles, lots of good stuff. Not anymore.....all gone. Used to be a nice place, but I won't be going back, anymore.

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!
