“45th museum and salvage yard”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

The indoor part of this museum is really nice. Well documented displays, nice equipment and memorabilia. Outdoors, sits rotting away, nice vehicles, acquired by the museum since the 1980's. Most were professionally restored by the 45th's service center, new tires, paint, new canvas, none of it cheap... Now after sitting some 30 years, some of the vehicles have been painted a rather flat grey drab. The fine collection of helicopters and airplanes, also sitting on pedestals outdoors survived a disastrous hailstorm, but their windshields did not, now they are also painted over rather cheaply.. WHY did they authorize such restorations on this priceless equipment, just to let it sit out and rot away?? A SHAME! For what they spent on separate concrete pads and walkways they could've built a nice building to store everything properly indoors.

“Worth seeing!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

My whole family enjoyed this museum, especially my 8 year old who is fascinated with all things WWII. We really enjoyed the weapons collection inside, the Hitler items, and the tanks outside. There are some construction and parking issues. We selected OKC as our weekend destination just so we could see this museum. We spent 2 hours here.

“Best free museum ever”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

You don't have to be a military buff to enjoy this museum. Lots to see inside & out. Very helpful and informative staff. Our visit was about 2 hours but you could stay much longer. There are parking issues because of water line construction but a very mild inconvenience.

“Great museum in Oklahoma City”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

If your interested in army museums this is a must see. Tanks, planes and various large equipement sits outside the walls. Inside is a large display of weapons used by the 45th. There are photos, maps, and a collection of Hitler,s personal goods brought back after the fall of Berlin. Price of admission is free with a collection box for donations. Be sure not to miss the gift shop, small but neat stuff.
