  • I recommend a visit. I've never seen so many bullets and cannons together in one spot. They even had one those flags they gave to the Kamikazes before taking off, and the katana too. Amazing!!!
  • Really cool museum. bring your kids when you visit
  • Great hidden gem. This museum has awesome displays and many interesting vehicles that you can get up close and personal with. The staff is great as well, especially Phil at the front desk who greeted us warmly and told many funny and intriguing stories! I would highly recommend it!
  • This museum is a gem. Who knew you could fit so many great exhibits in a small place. And the open turret days are epic!
  • Lots of cool tanks that you can get right up next to and touch
