Amazing collection, a hidden gem in Huntsville. A must see when visiting Huntsville, something you would not expect being so vast in artifacts.

For a quick and quiet visit to see some in-depth displays this is a great location. It is not pretentious or expensive to visit. Rather, the displays are well done - and the staff very engaging if you have a question. Strongly recommend visiting.

This is filled with mostly WWII equipment. I took my Dad here. He had been in the 1st CAV during WWII and was familiar with much of the stuff. He educated the guides, which isn't that easy

Yes it is. The aisles between exhibits are wide enough for wheelchairs. I think there was only one exhibit that had stairs as it was in an old rail car.
