  • 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.
  • 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.)
