An outstanding collection, and you will be treated to a personal tour from the widow of the gentleman who amassed this collection. Check opening times, and call ahead if necessary to arrange your tour. Well behaved youngsters interested in history will be amazed, as everything is up close and personal...and at eye level for kids. Nice glass cases, everything displayed... More

Ignore what Google says. This museum is NOT closed. The amazing woman who runs it is a treasure in herself. The way she describes each item on display with such detail is incredible. This is a military memorabilia collection that is not to be missed with items from the UK, USA, Russia, Germany, France, Italy, ect. There's even NASA memorabilia.... More

Upon arrival, we saw a sign in the door that another tour was in progress. We waited for approximately 20 minutes before meeting with Patricia Mountain, the owner of the museum. Patricia's husband had saved a variety... More

My wife and I stopped by this museum during our recent anniversary trip to Lexington. Patricia gave us the tour as an anniversary gift. Her husband spent much of his life collecting the items on display and they opened it together. She offered a wealth of information about the items and much insight into her and her husband's family history.... More

Totally amazed by the collection. It is a great look inside a man's life. So glad that his wife has carried on the collection to share with us and also share his memory. I will always remember this museum.

Whatever the country, whatever the branch of service, whatever the battle the owner is a wealth of knowledge! You can give her your timetable and she fits the tour according to your wishes.
