  • 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 »
  • Coming here was awesome, in town for my nephews bday and just had to come here. This was one of the places my husband was stationed, even though I couldn’t checkout the entire base, this museum is ver...  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 »

  • I make a point to visit this museum every time I'm in the area, every 2 or 3 years. They are always updating or adding exhibits. The museum grows as the history of Army transportation grows, which is appreciated. There are experimental pieces here you won't see anywhere else. The crown jewel IMHO is the Eve of Destruction. She's the only gun truck that was brought back from Vietnam. I've seen her display improve over the years, from being parked outside to being moved inside and watched the Vietnam diorama grow around her. My favorite exhibit. This museum is free to the public, donations happily accepted and greatly appreciated. Between the indoor and outdoor displays you can spend 2 to 4 hours or more, depending on the detail you wish to absorb. Family friendly, the kids enjoy it! Well worth your time. Very nice gift shop as well.
  • This place is HUGE! Doesn't look like it from the outside. Super friendly people!
  • 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!
  • Amazing museum! So much variety to see, even the kids were entertained.
  • Awesome museum if you are interested in all the Army Transportation Corp encompasses.
