“Educational and Sensational”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The care and detail, the stories told, and the feelings stimulated leave one to wonder... What is man thinking? How did we come to create such uniforms, tools, weapons, maps, et al. MOST IMPRESSIVE

“Outstanding little museum”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Mr. Mott has done a remarkable job - there is a truly amazing collection of items on display in a relatively small space. We took our two high-school age grandsons there on an outing and weren't sure how interested they'd be [although they had checked out the website - which is very nice, by the way - first]. They were very interested, appreciative and respectful and gave each display careful attention. Later, they both thanked us for taking them there. It was handy having "young eyes" with us, because [and this is my only criticism], the displays are packed and some of the descriptive cards are difficult to read due to distance from the glass and lighting issues. I would say that unless a child is really interested in history, this wouldn't be suitable for a child under 12 or so, but adults and serious teens would definitely appreciate it. Allow at least two hours - preferably more - for your visit.

“Small, but cool!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a little place off of south Hamilton Road. It is small but they have TONS of military items on display from weapons, to uniforms, and everything on between. There are even some military vehicles in the back that you can look at. It was 5.00 to get in and look at all the stuff. Worth it I thought. It take about 1/2 hour - 45 mins to check everything out.

“Out and About”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This museum is the work of one man who has pulled together a collection of military artifacts from the Civil War to todays battles in Afghanistan and Iraq. To view it is like rummaging through an old trunk that has been stored away in the attic for over fifty years. Each piece has a story behind it. Go out back and you will find some of the heavy stuff, the mobile howitzers, choppers, etc. An off-road attraction worth visiting.

“Extensive tour by retired Military personnel”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The number and variety of objects there was amazing. Surprising new additions were the 9/11 items (including a firetruck). The volunteers were often retired military personnel who bring to life the stories with their own interesting details. I was pleasantly surprised at how much they have!
