  • It's a really-fun museum. Lots of things for both kids and adults to see and do. Last time I was there, some of the outside exhibits needed some maintenance, but maybe that's fixed now. The last vestige of the Transportation Corps at its former home.
  • Heads up! You Must Go Through A Military Check Point to Enter the Base in Order to Go to the Museum! The museum itself was wonderful though. Amazing selection of dated and modern military vehicles. The museum offers free self guided tour devices that speak to you about each display. If that's not enough I'll go ahead and tell you this: They have a freakin' jetpack. A jetpack. Did you hear me?
  • One of my favorite museums! This place is a must visit for any military or history fans. Lots of awesome exhibits, and the attention to detail is great.
  • Very well put together and quite a lot to see and enjoy!
  • Very well done.
