We visited here after the recommendation from a friend and were very pleased we did. A very nice selection of historical military plus a nice assortment of unique vehicles and vintage carriages. Displays are well designed and items are presented well. Staff was very friendly and offered veteran discounts.

Since we were going to be in the Auburn area anyway, I figured we would check this place out. We all love military history, and this museum had something for all of us. Lots of neat historic guns, tanks and photos. There are a lot of things you just don't see that often.

Very extensive collection. Really great stuff for a small town area museum. Could use a guide book or something to view items. More lighting and it was quite chilly. I realize there isn't much traffic going through so keeping heat and lights isn't really cost effective. Really though, with the car museum included, a great afternoon.

While interesting, the museum is a bit sparse in its displays. Looks like they are in need of more or expecting more to come.

High ceilings and dim lighting made this feel like a warehouse with a few significant vehicles and displays scattered about. There were a couple of signs indicating some work in progress so maybe I just caught it in transition.

Another jewel in the Ft. Wayne Allen County area. Wonderful selection of trucks , cars and store. We happened to be there as they were getting ready for the world wide auction. They had 15 very special cars in A1+ condition. We had done the Auburn Auction in the morning going thru all the cars to be auctioned. Then we... More

I have been driving by this place since it was built never gave it thought before. Man what a mistake. This museum has many different vehicles, guns, uniforms, documents from ww2. There is also a second museum that has a large collection of unique carriages and vehicles from movies/ tv shows ( mostly 80's ) . We did have a... More

Guns? Check. Jeeps? Check. Tanks? Check. Airplanes? Check. Uniforms? Check. And from all sides of most any conflict.
