  • Both indoor and outdoor exhibits. WW II to present. Once in life time vehicles to find (Jeb Stuart tank) to current air Force training jet (t38). Weapons models uniforms. Store has stuff for kids to artifacts for collectors.
  • Total waste of time. Completely random compilation of junk and surplus rusting away. Staff was rude but happy to take my money. It really does deserve a "no star" rating.
  • Family had a great time. Lots of things to see (exhibits, vehicles, etc) Worth the trip
  • The Russell Military Museum is about a stone's throw away from Bristol, Wisconsin. It's $10 or $15 admission, and if you have a party of 5 (or join up with other visitors to the museum) they offer tank rides for $75 minimum total or $15 p/person, 5 person minimum. While there are tons of tanks and aircrafts that stretch far and wide, there isn't a lot of information about them, though there is an indoor part of the museum which is like a warehouse of war memorabilia.
  • They have a great little store besides all the cool military machines out back. They do sell postcards and war memorabilia!!!
