  • Took my 12 year old to the Museum, the collection of historical weapons is overwhelming. Don't go if you are expecting any thing produced in the last 10 years. However, if you appreciate historical small arms weaponry, this is the place for you.
  • Incredible place. Plan to spend at least 4 hours if you want to see it all without rushing
  • I've been to the JM Davis Gun Museum many times over the years. I'm from Dallas, and yet I'm willing to make the 250+ mile drive because the museum is worth it! I've even made my own schematic of the museum. Trivia question: how many display cases are there? (Answer: almost 700, although some of the numbers are missing). I once asked the Museum Director if anyone has ever tried to break into the museum, and she said, "No", although she said that the son of one of the employees got in at night one time and couldn't disable the alarm system. She also said that having the Claremore Police Department one block away probably helped.She also said that the Fire Marshal had told her the greatest danger was a fire, since the museum doesn't have a sprinkler system. Probably the biggest collection of guns, public or private, in the US. While the National Cowboy Museum in OKC has a much smaller and fancier collection, this one is still the best!
  • Had a lot of fun and very educational
  • Great place to go to see historical items
