  • Wonderful museum with amazing history of firearms. We have visit twice and I don't believe I've seen it all. If you're a history buff you'll thoroughly enjoy this.
  • Fantastic place for gun lovers. Guns from around the world. Also had crossbows and the world's largest and smallest gun.
  • They say that quality exceeds expectations. If that's true, this museum is quality times 100. I never imagined such a large collection, so well preserved, so well organized, so well identified, and so creatively displayed. You can cruise the aisles, like I did, and see most of the groups. Or you can plan the hours needed to examine a majority of the groups. If I get to go again, I'll first select a few categories and see in detail the displays that most interest me. Combining the firearms AND the non-firearm artifacts, I'm estimating the museum contents approach 15,000 individual items! I'm guessing the glass covered displays require thousands of square feet of polished glass. Don't let the size of the one city block wide building fool you. It's Big.
  • So much to see! We spent 3 hours inside and could easily have stayed longer. A must see for gun or history lovers. Nicely organized and lots of information about all the items. I especially enjoyed the Law and Order memorabilia. Seating available in the back if you need a break or are waiting for others. Our daughter enjoyed the train set, the children's table with books and the horse and buggy. Free admission. Gift shop items available also. The map is especially helpful when looking for favorites.
  • Unbelievable how many guns a single person could possibly own! A nice free museum on Route 66. You could spend days here. They have some really good free pocket guides available too which help point out some hidden gems on Route 66
