“Small but Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

My father was stationed here during the 60's so it was neat to see the history of transportation in the military.

“Army transportation museum worn but unique.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

If you like army museums, war stuff or big equipment, this is the place for it. The displays are a little dusty, the mannequins a little lost-looking in a few areas, but it is about equipment and you will see it all. Veterans of earlier wars like to see equipment they used constantly (my dad was really interested in it).

“Very well presented.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

The inside portion of this museum is nicely done. I was impressed. They are out of room and will have to add on as their museum covers from beginning of our nation until now. They have many outdoor vehicles to look at and many brought back memories of my army days. The lady running the gift shop was well informed and answered questions. There were things for my 11, 14, and 16 year old to do and a comfortable sitting area if members of your party take longer than others. This is on a active base and your car will be searched at a security check point. Make sure you have license, registration and proof of insurance.
