This little known military museum is actually the largest Army-theme museum in the western U.S. Not a lot of people go because it's on a military base. Camp Roberts was originally the Army's largest replacement training center for World War II, and now it's the main training and pre-deployment site for all the Army National Guard units in California. The museum has two big exhibit buildings and a lot of tanks and other track vehicles. Exhibits on the local Indians, training during WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan; also the many celebrities who trained there, like Red Skelton, Robert Mitchum, Steve Allen, Bob Newhart, etc. Free admission. Includes a video viewing room, shaded picnic area, gift shop and more. Well worth the time it takes to sign in at the main gate. Right off Hwy. 101 between Paso Robles and King City.
