  • Lots of military history in this place. Takes some time to be granted access but worth the effort. I was here 18 years ago.and it was even better this time. Again worth a visit if you can spare a few hours.
  • A great addition to a short history trip for my son project
  • An exhaustive collection of small arms, documented in detail. Would be a rewarding visit for a historian.
  • Getting registered at the visitor control center is almost as much fun as the museum!
  • Extremely comprehensive museum of US small arms. Very cool place to stop in on the island.
