IS NOW PERMANENTLY CLOSED. Mr. Ropkey passed away. Family closed the museum this month (August 2017) It was a wonderful museum to see all kinds of military equipment. Unfortunately the equipment has been dispersed throughout the country and is no longer under one roof.

What a treat to see all of that military equipment in one place. The folks that work there were so friendly and answered all of our questions.

I took a group of school children here twice in June. Lani and Skip were very knowledgable and you could tell it was a labor of love!

My husband and I stopped here not knowing what to expect. The property is beautiful and the number of vehicles is impressive. My husband served in Vietnam, his father WWII so seeing tanks, jeeps, etc from those eras was nice. Doesn't take much time to...More

In looking for something different to do over spring break, we decided to visit Ropkey Armor Museum. OMG! To see the variety of tanks and vehicles along with the many other military items he has, it really put things into perspective. I had no idea...More
