  • Fabulous location for a Vintage Base Ball match or two! Hope to revisit the Museum when we play there next season. The staff was very pleasant and gave us tired Ballists the leftover soda (pop to folks in the north) after their free-admission day was successfully concluded.
  • This was a charming museum! At first, it doesn't seem like much to look at, but inside is a pleasant surprise, with lots of memorabilia, and the tank was a bonus! The nice gentleman who was working on the tank has so much information! We're so glad we took the time to stop here.
  • Small space packed with a lot of history relating to 6th Cavalry in the early 20th Century. They were tasked in several major wars and rose from mounted cavalry to motorized cavalry and became part of the first Apache as Air Combat Squadrons. They were influential in establishment of Heavily Armored Helicopter tactics. Can't wait for the tank restoration to be completed.
  • Excellent history for myself and especially my son to learn!
  • I did not dislike this museum; it is just very small and doesn't have much.... It does have an M47 tank.
