This is like a cemetery and not a museum. Seems that we are in an abandoned area walking in a dirty junk yard.

Don't go expecting polished exhibits like in the WWII Museum in New Orleans, but this is something special. Such a huge collecting of millitary artifacts over 100 years, not any particular era. It sure overwhelmed me with memories from the Vietnam era, 50 years ago....More

Great place to see and learn about military items and vehicles. Owner has an amazing knowledge of the vehicles, history, and great stories of how he collected them. During summer months they offer tank rides in an M113 A2 armored personnel carrier

If you are looking to visit a military museum with some rare items the Russell Military Museum is the place for you. I saw a M51 Isherman turret, M113 XM734 and a damaged M48 Patton on a trailer. If you are a military modeler and...More

Terrible place. Very rude staff. It is hard to call it museum. Looks like owners want to collect money only, and do nothing else. Durty and very unsafe place.
