  • This dude knows his stuff! I really appreciate the knowledge and it was fascinating to hear about where the guns were located. I highly recommend visiting.

  • My favorite gun museum! I have been to a few firearms museums. This is the best. It is very different from what you might expect. These are guns found rusting and rotting away somewhere. Very few have a known origin, but they all have a story. It is up to you to imagine how that gun ended up rusting away for over a hundred years. I found this fascinating. Some are damaged from malfunction and may well have caused the death of the operator. Small but very interesting if you have the imagination for it. Donations only at the time I visited.
  • Awesome place. Could spend hours looking around. Great friendly owners. Highly recommend
  • Very interesting ! We arrived on the day, they were closing for the winter, but they graciously remained open so we could visit !
  • Outstanding place! You cannot miss a visit to this Museum. And Hans is an open library on what he has here.
  • So cool and a wealth of firearm and historical knowledge! If you have 5 minutes or 45, come check this little gem out!
