This amazing museum includes a 6500 square foot museum loaded with well-organized military weapons, gear and paraphernalia. Outside the museum dedicates about two acres to various military warplanes, antiaircraft weapons, cannon, tanks and other armor. The visitor will even find a German World Wary II bunker outfitted the way the GI invaders of Norway found them as they fought their way off the beaches. We spent most of the afternoon looking at the exhibits and marveling at the scope and size of the things on display. The exhibits include a General Dwight D. Eisenhower uniform, a Japanese World War Tank and a fully equipped full size parachutist landing and ready for action.
Outside, visitors will find armor and airplanes on display. This extensive collection includes a MiG-17F, a Douglas C47-D Skytrain, an M-3 Halftrack and a M-47 A.K.A Patton Tank. The collection is needless to say, quite impressive.
