  • Incredibly place to visit. Loved seeing the transportation vehicles for Army serviceman over the many years of protecting our Country!
  • Excellent collection. It shows how military vehicles and transportation changed over time. It was a wealth of information. We really enjoyed it.
  • Pretty much our favorite museum around here. Our boys LOVE it, and the displays are interesting and well maintained. The cost of admission, donation only, is WAY more reasonable than any other aviation/war museum in the area (others are over $100 for a family of 6 with young children and toddlers!) You can't go wrong here. If you aren't military or a retiree, you need your insurance and vehicle registration to get on base at the checkpoint. It's not a big deal, takes like 5 minutes. My MIL took our boys on, no hassle (We live off base.)
  • Anyone giving this one star has not visited. This is a extremely organized and exemplary museum that showcases the Armys Transportation through the ages. If your not interested you should be. Some very unique and interesting test items are located here.
  • Very cool museum with a wide variety of exhibits.
