Hawthorne Ordnance Museum reviews
Very interesting place. It open,s at 10am, but when the man inside saw us, he opened it up at 9:30am. That was very cool of him. He was very kind and knowledgeable.

The modest outside hides a gem. The volunteers-veterans- were knowlegeable and friendly. Such a rich history. It is a must-see for anyone passing through Hawthorne.

You won't believe how much Ordnance history is jam-packed on this property. And it's less than 2.5 hours from Reno, near picturesque Walker Lake. We had to rush our visit, so we weren't able to spend the kind of time a museum such as this deserves. However I will return to see this place any time I can. Anyone with an interest in U.S. Ordnance, like rockets, missiles, mines, and artillery shells will enjoy this museum. There are items and articles from the local military base and Ordnance manufacturing plant. For a free museum, you will get a great educational experience any collector or historian would shell out good money to visit. Check the gift shop for inert ordnance, ammo cans, and things like tshirts and decals. Your purchases help support this fine museum! BRING CASH IF YOU WANT TO BUY ANYTHING FROM THE GIFT SHOP. THEY DO NOT ACCEPT CARDS.
A must see experience, you are doing a disservice to yourself if you skip it. The volunteer staff is passionate and knowledgeable. This place had taken to the time to set up rooms to mimic a barrack and press print room. Did I mention they have a tank inside that you can look into. I could have spent another hour or 2 looking at all the details of things are just when you think you have seen it all up look up to see more. This place is free and runs on donations.
