    The staff are enthusiastic and rightfully so. This is a very large museum with an extensive artifact collection. Be prepared for a lot of walking! The descriptions are good and there is an acoustic to...  more »

    My in-laws went to this museum when they visited us this summer and told us we should go. So we went! There is so much to see, that it would take hours to read and see it all! My husband and I definit...  more »

    Unfortunately we could not enter. When checking both passports and driver's license issued. The young soldier asked an older policeman. This indicated that we could not enter because we do not have the correct stamps in our passport. Apparently you as a foreigner may not just go in there and there should be more. Unfortunately, no mention of it here on the website and leaflets of the museum.

    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.

    We loved the history of army transportation. It was fun abd educatuonal and it was free admission to the public.

    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.)
