  • An extensive exhibit. Interactive displays and videos. Showed our son, a manufacturing student the process and application of his course of study. A site on the national historical registry, so it also meets requirements for BSA citizenship merit badge. Worth the trip.
  • It was amazing๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I have to rate it a 4 because it is very interesting and informative but it is very old national historic site.
  • An amazing museum, well worth the trip. Contains not just the historic arms, but also the pre-production prototypes and some tooling for the arms.
  • Really interesting and best of all it's FREE! Thought since it's rather small and hour and half would be plenty of time, but I only got about halfway through. Will definitely be back.
  • Free admission.... amazing display of weapons and machinery that produced them.
