  • The gun museum is amazing - seriously if you like guns _ GO GO GO _ you could stay there for hours. The other displays are put together so well and the atmosphere is so relaxing. I loved how they treated me with respect because of my veteran status. What a great place. I have so many memories of this place as a child. I can't wait to go again.
  • This place was huge! There was so much to look at and interact with. Great for the entire family and truly something for everyone. It was defantly something to see and will likely take you 2 days to even see it all.
  • A fantastic museum complex. Definitely a must see. Admission gets you in for two days which might be enough time for most people to see and enjoy all the treasures they have here.
  • Guns, guns, and more guns. This place has a huge display guns from all time periods. There are 5 sections in the museum. The firearms and natural history sections were our favorite. Plan on spending a few hours as there is a lot to take in.
  • A full day isn't enough time to see it all. Luckly the pass is good for two days. First rate museum.
