I'm not a gun lover, I don't shoot and I do not permit guns in my home. That said, my son & husband hunt and shoot. Guns and the history behind them are interesting for them, so I tagged along. The history part of this place is CRAZY! That's the part I enjoyed and to try to wrap your head around the part that the armory played in helping to industrialize not only arms manufacturing but manufacturing in general is pretty amazing. The armory is run by the National Park Service, so if you're looking for slick, interactive and modern - you will be disappointed. This is the museum of your childhood, but remember - it is free! I say go, check it out and learn something. It's worth an hour or so of your time.
