All Gun lovers need to visit this collection of firearms. It will blow your mind. However, it is more than just guns. Consider 50,000 unique items, including firearms, swords and knives. There are all kinds of "Believe It Or Not Oddities" gallery of outlaw guns, and other Native American artifacts,

If you own a gun, chances are that you will find one like it at the museum. There are also displays of swords,... More

The building doesn't really look that HUGE from the outside, but once you get inside you can literally stay for hours on end and not see everything. Its... More

I visit once every two years and did so again on this occasion. This is a fantastic place for gun enthusiasts and there is very little that is missing from the eclectic collection. My only criticism is that lighting is poor which can detract from the visit. Allow half a day. Staff are very friendly and full of enthusiasm. A... More
