  • If you are interested in military history - STOP HERE!! Amazing what one individual has been able to accomplish. There is a collection of tanks, trucks, aircraft, and the list goes on and on...  more »
  • This privately funded museum (other than entrance fees/donations) is a wonderful collection of old and restored items from WWII, Korean, Vietnam and Desert Storm wars. After entering the front office....  more »
  • Absolutely awesome trip! Ask about the tank rides, they are incredible! Spent most of the day here. The owner is running something he truly loves and it shows. I HIGHLY recommend striking up a conversation because this man is a real pleasure to talk to. He shared tons of cool stories about the pieces in this collection and was our tank driver for our ride. Let me tell you he knows how to drive, too, and its exhilarating to fly around their track in an armored carrier!
  • This place is excellent! I've been here a few times, and will definitely be back. The indoor museum is very extensive and has a lot of content. The outdoor portion is a great place to spend a lot of time. When you exit the indoor museum for the outdoor potion, right away there are 4 vehicles that you can enter, including an M-113 APC in excellent condition. Great for anyone with an interest in military history and military vehicles. The gift shop is great too with a lot of apparel and merchandise. If you haven't been here, you need to check this place out.
