This museum was educational, inclusive and extensive. We spent a couple hours and just scratched the surface. The displays were professionally done, well marked and had detailed explanations. A must see for a firearms aficionado!

Some of my shooting buddies had told me about this place but their descriptions didn't even come close to the amazing collection they have. The collections are by manufacture, date, conflict, and type of firearm. They have tens of hundreds of firearms dating back to the beginning...along with movies of the development of the gun. They even have mock-ups of old workshops etc...and that is what is on the main floor!!

Going down to the lower level you will find the Smithsonian collection of of another tens of hundreds of firearms...all cataloged in the usual Smithsonian fashion.

If you like guns...you will absolutely love this Museum!! One caution...be sure to allot plenty of time....you could easily spend a whole day in just this one section.

Brilliant display on the history of firearms. It was so interesting, we loved it. This place houses the most comprehensive collection of American firearms in the world. This is one of the best exhibits I have seen anywhere in this country!
