  • The whole town of Chiriaco is a good story. Mr. Chiriaco bought up the land to make a gas station and store when he heard that there were plans to put a highway through in the late 20's. Then in WWII ...  more »
  • Looking for a distraction on the path from LA to Phoenix on I-10, this might be just the thing. The museum is dedicated to Gen Patton, and the Desert Training Camps set up in WW2 to prep the troops fo...  more »
  • This was a great stop. The museum explained the part that Patton played in the training of Army Personal in the desert, preparing them for going to North Africa during WWII.  more »
  • A great place filled with history and fun. They were playing a video on Patton when I got there so I learned more about him than I already did that way. Also was a bunch of old relics and items from his era and articles he handled. It was very impressive to see. Even the souvenirs are educational. The one I bought being a reprinted poster of a speech he made to his men. At the time I went there, the yard to see the tanks was blocked but I was able to go around the back and see some tanks that were not enclosed. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I recommend this place to everyone. Bring kids, adults, etc. It's welcoming to all!
  • Great stop covering more then just Patton. Many artifacts from the military and the area during WWII. The tank yard is great. Wish they would allow entrance into one of the tanks. They do have a cut away turret which give you a view of what it was like in a tank but not the same as actually getting into one. They are adding on to the museum or at least bring on new exhibits as of December 2017.there is a video that loops giving a lot of details of the area and the camp that Patton built to train soldiers for WWII.
  • We toured the museum and its large collection of decommissioned tanks. My son loved all the weaponry and was only disappointed that he couldn’t climb on the tanks. We used the time to explain to him a bit about what his great-grandfather did and we found the actual model of tank that he drove in the war.
  • Nice small museum. Would be nice if they had more signs by the tanks and jeeps
  • If u r a wprld war II buff this is a very interesting plave to go.
