  • Excellent museum of firearms history and technology. Many beautiful pieces on display. Entrance and parking are free. Very friendly and helpful staff. This museum is a wonderful gift from the NRA to the public.
  • Good museum, a little bit out of the way from the center of DC but worth the trip. The museum has a very confusing touch pad stands for the information, but the devices don't make it easy to find information on the artifacts you are looking for. Overall, if you are interested in the subject matter, the displays in this museum are unique and plentiful. I do wish it was simpler pull up information on the artifacts.
  • A group of armed men entered my residence, found my gun and ammunition before I could get to it, illegally searched my personal property and effects without a warrant, threatened me with a taser, confiscated my legally owned weapon and threatened me with physical violence until I left the house while they went through and documented the contents of my home. A clear deprivation of my of my 4th amendment and 2nd amendment rights. Please send me a message if you know which law firm I should contact to find out if law enforcement can legally steal your gun if they have no court precedence or legal rite.
  • Are you kidding me......this place is insane, what a collection. I would have gone just to see the gun from the Rifleman. Alot of people gave a low rating because the NRA hassled them with phone calls and spam. Who cares.....rate the museum. Free parking, free access, and not hassled in any manor. Win, win. I'll be back, I'm sure I missed something.
  • It is amazing the history and love fire arms that is in this museum. It is free to enter and if I am honest it I can spend hours here looking and being amazed by what is in this building. I take anyone I know from out of town here.
