An AMAZING number of guns at this location, I can't believe the number of times I have been on Route 66 and have never stopped here. Can't go wrong with the price of admission as it's FREE. They do have a donation box when you come in and suggest $5 a person, you can't go wrong for 5 bucks! Stop and see this place, you will NOT regret it.

“unusual, for the gun lover”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

10,000 firearms--the largest privately owned collection of guns in the USA. So, if you're into guns, you'll enjoy this place. There are some political buttons and artifacts, a display of movie posters (mostly from John Wayne movies), saddles and some model trains too, along with a little gift shop. Along old Route 66, this museum is an unusual one, although perhaps I'd say for the gun-lover only.

“Great place to spend a day.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

You can spend all day here and never see everything. The not only have guns, they have swords too. They only take donations so the price is whatever you want it to be. A great place to see history for yourself........

“Great place for gun enthusiasts and history buffs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

I took my 2 boys here, 4 and 8. My 8 year old LOVED all the different and interesting guns. My 4 yr. old loved the trains. I loved the Outlaw's section. This museum has a little something for everyone. And the best part....it's free! There is a donation box, and I was so impressed that I contributed gladly. Lots of history and fun. Highly recommend.

“Awesome place to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

This place is hugh. If you like guns you need to come here. I especially loved the section with the depression era bonnie and clyde exihib as I am facinated with outlaws. I have been there several times and will probably go back several times.
