Very large & quite impressive collection of military memorabilia, weaponry, vehicles, uniforms, artifacts. Detailed exhibits. Everything Thoroughly presented & documented. Displayed in era's (date). Housed in an old Armory building. Small gift shop. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. A hidden gem. Free admission. Terrific day trip.
