  • I was very impressed. We spent well over two hours roaming the collections and had a great time! I We were really amazed at all of the tracked vehicles. The Cobra helicopter was also cool. Our son liked watching the RC tanks. It was pretty cold inside, so I would suggest dressing in layers.
  • As soon as you walk in the door you are surround with "DO NOT TOUCH" on EVERYTHING!! Even on the glass keeping you away from the exhibits! They advertise there are hands on exhibits but that is only for anyone over the age of twelve and there are less than 5 exhibits to touch. So if you have kids under 12 you're going to spend the entire time yelling "DON'T TOUCH THAT!!".We were on one of the exhibits you are allowed to touch with our kids (ages 10 and 7), not 2 feet from them and doing it with them when we were yelled at to "GET THEM OFF OF THAT NOW!!" by a extremely rude man on a bike!! He's reason was they could get hurt. Sitting in a chair, with their mom touching their leg, and not doing anything!! We were then ESCORTED out by bikeman and were continually insulted and yelled at for not reading the sign as we came in. This man circled my husband and continued to insult him as if he was trying to provoke him into a physical fight!! This place was HORRIBLE!!!
  • Very impressed with this place. Extensive collection and fantastic experience all around. Friendly staff and fun shows. Perfect place for the whole family!
  • A very cool museum; definitely off the beaten path but well worth the trip.
  • Would've been 5 stars but the place was closed on Thursday. Usually google will inform me if the establishment is open or not.
