  • If you have any interest in history or firearms this is the place to visit. The collection is outstanding I only wish I'd had more time, there is not only exhibits but in most cases there's a detailed description or details related to each object where found and the manufacturer and country of origin. The owner is a subject matter expert on the contents of the museum. It's also free but please leave a donation to preserve this segment of history.
  • My favorite gun museum! I have been to a few firearms museums. This is the best. It is very different from what you might expect. These are guns found rusting and rotting away somewhere. Very few have a known origin, but they all have a story. It is up to you to imagine how that gun ended up rusting away for over a hundred years. I found this fascinating. Some are damaged from malfunction and may well have caused the death of the operator. Small but very interesting if you have the imagination for it. Donations only at the time I visited.
