    For the $12 admission price this place blew me away. Yes there is a list of rules you are asked to follow such as no weapons and no chewing gum. The man riding the bicycle around is the owner who built this place from his very first armored scout car to what it is today. Take some time to speak with this guy, he made my experience twice as good as it already was. I had a question about a piece and he led me behind the rope and into the display to show me in detail how everything worked.

    The collection of tanks, self-propelled artillery, and uniforms is world-class! Signage and navigating the museum is rather confusing but, once you figure out how get actually get to the tanks it's easy to get around. Odd bits unrelated to tanks or military with for sale signs on them scattered through the museum was weird. Before entering the museum, visitors must sign a list or behavior rules that this visitor felt was indignant enough to be a serious distraction from enjoying the place.

    Absolutely Fantastic Experience!

    Staff was courteous and friendly in the typical Southern small town way. Impressive collection of firearms and uniforms, but to walk in and see all of those tanks in one place was incredible. I don't want to ruin it, but to see so many WWII and up era tanks, some of which were foreign, was a real treat.

    We'll be going again, and I think you should too!

    If you have in interest in armored vehicles, militaria, uniforms or history, this is a place well-worth visiting. It's almost entirely indoors, so it is perfect rain or shine!

    The museum has a tremendous variety of military vehicles on display, from WWII-era to modern era. The displays are well lit, and allow most to be viewed from multiple angles.

    The museum is about much more than merely vehicles. The museum features an impressive array of military uniforms, especially helmets and heagear, many of which I'd never seen on display anywhere...Read More

I didn't get to see any RC Tank battles but the arena they take place in is pretty cool on its own.

I will definitely be going back to this place.

The museum has a tremendous variety of military vehicles on display, from WWII-era to modern era. The displays are well lit, and allow most to be viewed from multiple angles.

The museum is about much more than merely vehicles. The museum features an impressive array of military uniforms, especially helmets and heagear, many of which I'd never seen on display anywhere else. There are also posters, pictures, and a lot of unit memorabilia donated by former military members who once wore some of the uniforms and vehicles now on display.

Overall, the effect is one of a unified sample of militaria, and hardly a sterile and boring exhibition.

This museum is well-worth visiting, and will reward multiple visits.
