  • Boring for anyone who isn't an adult. I feel kids definitely wouldn't enjoy this place. Unless, they're very into guns & how they are made & old guns. It was a yawn fest for me, but ex lived in the ar...  more »

  • 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.
  • Don't let the lack of interactive displays deter you from visiting this underappreciated museum. This armory played a critical role in American history and the efforts of the staff and their families should not be forgotten. While it does not have the razzle dazzle of other museums, it is a must see designation for any aspiring amature firearms historian.
  • Very interesting visit also picked up senior parks pass
  • Awesome museum, very friendly staff and guns presented in a very enjoyable way with lots of information and a movie about the history of the armory.
