This is an excellent private, hands on museum museum, open to the public on certain open house days and weekends and by appointment. Great learning experience- friendly volunteers with real deal stories and information

Took the opportunity to visit on Veteran's Day. The extent of the collection is impressive and I highly recommend. There were quite a few volunteer's on duty to answer questions. Definitely worth making time in your schedule to visit this private museum.
