  • Truly amazing how our American history can be traced through gun technology. The bow and archery section though smaller, is well worth the time. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
  • I'm a longtime (20+ years) NRA member and now Patron Member, so I am obviously very supportive of the NRA as a whole. However, for the purposes of this review, I will only write about the Shooting Arms Museum and what it offers. Well, first of all, it's free to the public, for both members and non-members alike. Second, it's conveniently located inside Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, MO. They have a great collection of all types of firearms from cowboy guns to military to law enforcement and all the way back to the seventeenth century. Everything is presented with history and context.
