The all volunteer group has done a nice job of collecting and displaying the items. Boy they sure could use some more room. Neat sight outside was a flock of doves on the tank.

Wonderful staff and great history. My husband wanted to go see the 1940 Ford Pygmy with Serial Number 1. Well worth the visit!

Great Museum, Hidden near Old Airport. sn#1 Ford Jeep. Several WWII era tanks. Many in running condition, and used in local events. Staffed by veterans who can bring their experiences adding to the displays, making this an enjoyable visit.

really depends on how fast got want to go. We did it in about 1 1/2 hours, but I had a daughter that was in a hurry. I would recommend 2-3 hours to really read and enjoy all of it.

Yes it is. The aisles between exhibits are wide enough for wheelchairs. I think there was only one exhibit that had stairs as it was in an old rail car.
