We read about this museum in the AAA book. This has to be nicest museums that we were not familiar with. A huge collection of Remington Bronzes. Vast number of firearms covering centuries and continents. WW II and Pearl Harbor displays.

Mostly old guns, along with a few other miscellaneous artifacts. Nothing wrong with it, just be aware of the fairly narrow focus. We got in along with the adjacent natural history museum.
