The Berman Museum of weapons and art is truly an amazing collection and chronology of weaponry through the ages. Individual pieces, such as Hitler's silver set, are unique objects of history that give one chills. The Remington and Russell bronzes are fabulous.

My husband’s grandfather was a friend of Berman’s and talked about his amazing collection of guns and knives...long before the museum was built. So to be able to see the collection was a real treat. If you aren’t really a gun fan, you can view...More

This museum is exactly the type of collection you would expect to see from the travels of a military man. Many guns! Not sure how the Colonel managed to get 20mm anti-tank rifles here from Finland. Pieces of Hitler's silver service, historical firearms, and Asian...More

We read about this museum in the AAA book. This has to be nicest museums that we were not familiar with. A huge collection of Remington Bronzes. Vast number of firearms covering centuries and continents. WW II and Pearl Harbor displays.
