  • It's a great little museum that is kind of tucked away, we found it by chance in passing. There is a ton of content, the museum has a ton of different sections spanning the history of firearms. There ...  read more »
  • Such an awesome collection of history. Admission is free and it is open daily. A must see if in the Fairfax area. 
  • If you are a gun enthusiast, this is a must place to visit. They have collection and even though you'll see it as a small museum, reading and looking at their exhibits will take you a while. Not a pla...  read more »
  • Let me start off by saying most of these 1 star reviews are just a bunch of liberal trolls with their heads up their keisters. The NRA is our best defender of gun rights. That's good enough for me.
  • This museum hosts some of the most amazing works of early firearms craftsmanship from a bygone era. The museum also displays the collection beginning with the early days moving up through current firearms. Many of the guns were once owned by famous, or infamous people. Regardless of who once owned it, a visit to the place will be well worth the time of anyone with an interest in firearms.
  • Lots of cool guns. They have a range on site which would be more fun if you could rent some different guns. As it is, you have to bring your own gun.
  • I am a new NRA member. As soon as I joined, my phone, email, and home address EXPLODED with spam. You will get random calls, texts, emails saying you signed up for mailing lists, and random catalogs at your home once you join. Potential-members beware. I keep my phone and email private to avoid things like this...not hard to figure out where it came from.
  • Massive collection. I was pleasant surprised by the chronological history from the very beginning of the technology onwards. Next time, i will better utilize the computers to better pick out and learn the history of the "Treasures" in the showcases
