  • I honestly did not have an expectation for this museum. Family lives on base so we thought we would take advantage of the free good time. Let me tell you! The only down side is that you cannot ride or...  more »

  • We were originally going to go to a demolition derby but were rained out. Being retired military I was curious about the Army museum of transportation. I'm thinking a bunch of trucks? Man was I wrong!...  more »

  • This is a great museum for adults and kids alike. So much to learn and new things to see each year. There are plenty of places to picnic along the James River in the base so bring lunch with you. Free admission to the museum, but think about making a donation on the way out!
  • Great museum with lots of history about transportation. Lots of vehicles to look at and very well designed layout. I spent about an hour here checking it out. And it's free!
  • One of my favorite museums. The best one in the area. Considering how good the Maritime Museum is that is saying a lot. They have all kinds of cool transportation artifacts. My favorites are the experimental ones like the rocket pack. A lot of mid-century futurism here.
  • Admission free, unguided so can spend as much or as little time as fits your schedule. Both inside and outside display. Enjoyed it. Gift shop a little lite on selection and inventory.
  • A great history lesson..."A must visit facility "
