Lots of tanks...APC and artillery..naval guns. Great to see up close. Pricing is great. Takes about an hour to 90 minutes to check out. All outdoors so don't go when super hot.

I love tanks and this museum was a great place to visit. They had many tanks but also had many vehicles and gun, one which they had was one out of two in the whole world. Each piece had a stone in front of it...More
