  • This place is great! Definitely worth visiting even if you're not a gun nut, there is an insane amount of history in that museum. You can catch a free guided tour or they have touch screen kiosks throughout that detail the collections in each case. I lived this place, like a kid in a candy store!
  • Tremendous amount of firearm artifacts. Very well presented. Zero cost to visit.
  • A huge collection of firearms from all eras. A ton of interesting exhibits from a wide variety of different sources. I enjoyed the "Hollywood Firearms" exhibit, showing off examples of firearms used in a lot of famous films and TV shows. Just wish it wasn't so far outside of the DC proper!
  • This place is awesome. The museum is top notch and store and cafe are great. I got to use the range, they were really professional and helpful. This is a must stop if you love firearms.
  • Great museum. Not too large but a lot of history making weapons. The only down side is having to be buzzed into the building but that is a small annoyance.
