What is there to do?

Attennnnnnntion!  And march....

Formerlly the Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor, the now General George Patton Museum wonderfully preserves historical materials of Patton himself, as well as other artefacts and displays from the U.S Army.

The museum has some great exhibits.  Personal artefacts from General Patton - held in the Patton Gallery - are beautifully displayed to showcase his accomplishments from his time in the United States Tank Corps in 1917, right through to his time in WWII.  It is a fitting tribute to a man so important in US history, and continues his legacy proudly.  

The museum is very kid friendly, so great for all ages.  They will be surrounded by history and is a great way to learn outside of the classroom.  They also have outside exhibits and a playground so kids can run between both in the fresh air.

Most recently they have added a Fire Truck that was damanged during the Pentago attack on September 11, 2001. 

So step back into history with this collection of artifacts and memoribilia -and try to imagine the past as you walk round.  How would they have lived?  How might you have liked to live as they did?

I’m Hungry!

You must be hungry after that day of army training! There is a small gift shop which sells snacks and drinks, but just remember you can't take any of it into the museum itself - as they need to ensure all the artefacts stay well protected! There is a lovely picnic area outside the museum which are you more than welcome to use instead. - Fun things to do with kids and best places to visit in the US
