Overview
More
The museum has about 100 vehicles including helicopters, tanks, halftracks, ambulances, and a jeep from every branch of the service plus displays of weapons, uniforms, engines, equipment, and more. The everyday necessities of a soldier's life, such as MREs, blend with unique vehicles like those used by the German army in World War II.

This is a great place to visit if you are ex-military, currently serving, or just wanting to learn more about what the military personnel have used or might be still using. It is very educational for children and adults alike. I would highly recommend this...More

A good sized museum with a nice display, both indoor and outdoor. The outdoor exhibits are only somewhat labeled, so you don't know what everything is. But the history contained there is good if you're into military vehicles.
