This place has a lot of history to see. My husband's favorite stuff to see was World War 1 & World War 11 rifle and handgun display. If you go anywhere close to the area it's worth checking out

Located just outside Eglin Air Force Base, the Armaments Museum is free (though donations are obviously encouraged). It is a much smaller facility than others offered by the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio and at Warner-Robbins AFB in Georgia, it is somewhat unique in specifying...More
