This was a return visit -last here with the mother of our two grand kids - girls age 6 & 12. When entering the post, bypass the building that says "Visitor Center" an continue to a sheltered area where Military Police greet you. Adults will be asked to exit the vehicle (kids could stay seated) and to provide ID's. All door, trunks, hoods, etc. must be opened. This was professional and not a problem. Exiting the check point continue straight past the museum on the left across railroad tracks to the second crossover. You turn left toward the Exxon station. then left for a short distance then right into the museum- plenty of marked parking space.

The outside exhibits that were in the open area are not covered and so many more vehicles have been added! The three outside area are trains, wheeled veicles, water craft and air craft. In the train area, they have tank transporters loaded with a Patton and a Sherman tank as well as a LCVP and a hoover craft.

The wheeled vehicles were numerous. This veteran (60's) enjoyed seeing those jeeps & trucks from his past. The water craft exhibit is still in the open and is the smallest of the four. Some beautiful aircraft!

The inside of the museum is extremely well done and with so much detail. For someone with no military background this museum is very beneficial. The two young girls very much enjoyed the tour. The gift shop is small but nice. No charge but a donation is suggested.

We went to see a gun truck that was used in Vietnam during my tour there in 1969. What we found was a very well put together museum of military transport from the late 1800's until now. The various exhibits rival anything we have seen in museums in most major cities. I wish we had more time to spend there. The military personnel were most accommodating. This is well worth the side trip and time.

Amazing place with great displays inside and out. Knowledgeable staff, many retired military. Close to interstate, shopping,hotels,food and gas. You will need military ID or get a visitor pass.

I spent 31 plus years in the Army, and must say this is one of the best Military Museums I have visited. It truly sticks to the transportation theme, both inside and outside displays. The indoor museum is structured to take you from colonial days through the current desert scenarios, focused on military transportation history. I was amazed that I saw (found) 9 pieces of equipment that I had not previously known existed in the Army inventory. Plan to spend a good amount of time on the inside museum, great work and presentation of all items. Only improvement would be if they would open up for display the Military Hospital railcar and the passenger railcar so people could have a better appreciation of traveling in that RR era.

A worthwhile place to visit. The museum deals with the history of the evolution of the Transportation Corps of the Army. Among the artifacts is a gun truck used in Vietnam titled the Eve of Destruction and many other vehicles and trains the Army used to move troops and supplies.
