    We had stopped along the highway due to overheating - as you know the temperatures can get rather high during the day. We were pleasantly surprised to find this museum alongside a place to refresh ourselves. Knowledgeable staff and more than enough authentic memorabilia to keep you busy.

    Nice museum and it's growing! See actual tanks and discover the history of the area. There is an outdoor area featuring several types of tank and other military vehicles. The museum building feature many displays of military hardware and an impressive 3D relief map of the area. It's a great place to teach students about our preparations to enter World War Two.

    The museum was great but the 'Tank Garden' was closed so you couldn't see any of the tanks. They did give us a discount on admission but we drove a long way to see and touch the tanks and the kids were disappointed. The staff said it is supposed to be ready by Nov 2017.

    I liked coming here because this area had a lot of military history (palm desert) including being a desert training area during WW II for US troops deploying to North Africa
