  • Extremely comprehensive museum of US small arms. Very cool place to stop in on the island.
  • The museum had one of the biggest gun collections I've ever seen. It was interesting to see all of the history about the military items that were made there
  • Excellent museum with a trove of information and artifacts. Only hesitation with giving it 5-stars is due to the amount of effort required to visit. Being an actively military site though, I can understand the precaution.
  • It's small, but as a veteran I could spend hours there just looking at the firearms displays and reading the history. As a side note, the two cemeteries are right along the main road and well worth walking through and paying respect to the fallen.
  • Amazing place to tour and learn about the Island mission & history.
