I am not a gun fan, but this place is much more than just guns. I must admit the weapons were interesting and the displays were very nice. The toy displays are also very nice. This is a nice place to stop and get out of the heat.

My husband would have given this a much higher rating! He used to skeet and target shoot with his father. He also has several old (collectors) guns himself. I do have to say that I was amazed at not only the sheer number but also the age of some of the guns. If you are a gun afficianado you will love this place.

I haven't visited it in over 20 years, and there was an enormous amount of antique and rare guns on display then. The largest gun collection in the world at the time, and probably still. I've heard it has expanded since I was there last. It is on my list to visit again.

They have put so much in such a small space--I was in awe! The displays are well organized, and represent so many eras of weaponry. It was informative, and fascinating! The gift shop was also very nice, inexpensive, and held great treasures, as well.
