The museum has about 100 vehicles including helicopters, tanks, halftracks, ambulances, and a jeep from every branch of the service plus displays of weapons, uniforms, engines, equipment, and more. The everyday necessities of a soldier's life, such as MREs, blend with unique vehicles like those used by the German army in World War II.

A pleasant and unexpected find driving down the highway. I've been to several types of museums like this but this one had some vehicles that I had never seen before. Very comfortable and low pressure. Very friendly people here. Definitely worth your time.
