  • This museum is located literally in the middle of nowhere off of the 10 freeway in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The location, however, has significance. This area was where the troops in World War II trained for desert combat in North Africa. This museum documents the training camps that were built in the area to support the training operations. There is also a huge relief map of the Mojave Desert that was used during planning for the California Aqueduct project. The highlight of the museum is found outside where armored vehicles and tanks from around the world are displayed including one that appears to be a tank converted into a fire fighting vehicle. The museum can be gone through quickly in less than an hour so it might make an ideal stop if you or your kids want to get out and stretch your legs in the long desert segment between Phoenix and Los Angeles. If you have more time, you can easily spend 2-3 hours going through in depth. Be sure to talk to the people working there as they love to share the info they have on the museum.
  • Out of the way, but neat. Worth the entrance fee of$6. The kids really enjoyed looking at all the tanks, running around.
  • So much information! Kids loved it! They also show a little video about Gen. Patton
  • What a amazing facility stopped to use the restroom and found this Gem of a museum the whole family got to physically touch a real life tank it was so amazing
  • Pretty cool place to see some WWII history, as well as historic items from the war such as weapons. They have a decent collection of tanks outside too. Worth the $6 entrance fee if you're into the history.
