I didn't expect much out of this museum. Arrived early to OKC and realized I had time for some time for museums and this one popped up. Figured it'd be quick. 2.5 hours. Great displays and set up with a helpful and friendly staff. The Bill Mauldin collection alone is worth going for.
I have a passion for war history and the collection at this museum is incredible and so exciting. I’ve never seen so vast of an exhibit of military vehicles. It was really neat to see exhibits from an amphibious vehicle to a med truck; most museums usually have tanks and planes. I also absolutely loved how they organized and displayed the exhibits inside. So many pictures and memorabilia from various wars. This museum is definitely a war documentary lovers dream and it’s free! With that said, if you can donate I extremely recommend it. It can be completed in an hour, but if you like reading every single sign I suggest perhaps 2-3 hours. Most museums charge $20 a person, a small token of appreciation can enable this place to continue educating others for years to come.
This is a must-see in Oklahoma! What an honor to be able to visit this museum. The collection was historically vast and just amazing. Thank you for your service, if we are ever in Oklahoma again. We'll be back! I want to post all my pictures but y'all have to come see it for yourself!
Even if you are not a military buff, this museum is worth visiting. The Veteran who greeted us was very knowledgeable and gave us a historical summary of the 45th Infantry Division. The collections are impressive and they are wonderfully displayed. Outside, the tanks, planes, etc. they have on display are fascinating. (and great for photo ops!) Admission is free, but please make a donation.
very beautiful museum, extremely many exhibits, you can have a great time here
