Cracks open your heart and brain. Fascinating and well laid out and explained. We walked around reading almost everything, from the Hitler stuff and Dachau (hold your heart) to the dioramas a soldier made commemorating events, plus 3 highly artistic statues I loved, although their setting by a vent and a fire extinguisher was amusing yet fitting. Very friendly staff there who answered a couple questions we had. It's free but we emptied our wallets for the donation box because we're so grateful for such places that remind and teach us.
This was way beyond what I thought it was going to be like. This place was pretty good size inside the building with lots of rooms to walk into that have plenty of items and details of the wars we had to battle. Lots and lots of artifacts. Not very many touch feel stations or kid interaction stations. Also have to say that one of the rooms also shows death of the camps. So very graphic for some people. But it is what it is. And it happened. There was also a little gift shops. That had a few cool items for the kids to get and remember the trip. Outside is displays of the vehicles and aircrafts that was used in the years. This place was very neat and informative.
Great free museum to check out! They have indoor and outdoor stuff. Outdoor is great for kiddos but inside I'd definitely hold your child's hand depending on the age.
Incredible. Will be going back. Kids loved every second. It was free inside and outside. The lady inside was very informative and nice. All in all. Will definitely be going back there again.
All I can say about this museum is WOW. Looks small on the outside, but don't let that fool you. This is a gem of a museum and should most definitely be included in your travel plans when visiting OKC. There is an extensive collection of firearms dating back to the revolutionary war to the present ... really impressive what they've been able to document and showcase here. Also, I was absolutely blown away that there is an entire collection of Hitler's personal belongings here. I mean, wow, I've never seen anything like that, even in larger WWII museums. The man who greeted us at the museum had some really great tidbits of information about pretty much every exhibit so it was great overhearing his commentary throughout the visit. My husband and I spent about 2.5 hours here just looking through all the pictures and reading the history of this amazing infantry division. Well worth the short drive outside of the city center. Hard to believe this museum is free, yet houses some of the most interesting wartime history I've see for a while. Highly recommend!
