What age range would appreciate this museum the most? Is it advisable for children under 10? Would they be bored?
Our museum is appropriate for children of all ages who have an interest in history and military vehicles! We have many guests under 10 visit the museum who have a blast getting to see tanks, trucks, cannons, and more upclose. We do ask that the children not climb any equipment for their own safety, though.
We are also in the process of offering more programs just for kids: we already offer birthday parties at the museum, and we wilm introduce a summer camp appropriate for rising first through 6th grade students.
I hope this answers your question, and we look forward to seeing you!

I have taken my triplets there and they are 9. My son loves anything related to the armed services so he was very happy to see all the equipment. My girls liked it a little less than him but they still enjoyed it. If you can go when they are having an event that's even better. Live demonstrations are a crowd pleaser
