  • Bushong farm was great and very approachable although entrances and explanations not marked. Museum itself is really mediocre. Confusing construction of main exhibit room with wall of VMI info and center panels of random info. Not much of a gun person but collection was very interesting and advances in technology well catalogued.
  • Most of the exhibits were being refurbished. Not much to see although the weapons exhibit was nice.
  • Staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Enjoyed the visit!
