Love coming to this place to see the tanks and uniforms. It is large but would probably only take an hour or two. Not too pricey to get in.

My boys, 15 and 12 saw the billboard and wanted to go. They loved all the tanks, uniforms and guns on display. A true walk through history.

A strange and exciting Museum that attracts many visitors from far and wide. No air-conditioning, unfortunately.
