If you have ever watched the History Channels History of the gun this is the place to visit. The different weapons on display is amazing. It started as a private collection of a retired WWII OSS officer. The items he had collected from around the world is amazing.

It's hard to believe that Anniston has this fantastic museum. Prized possessions of Hitler, Mussolini and other rulers.Great artifacts of weapons and many rare treasures. David Ford does an excellent job.

Saw a story on Shooting USA about this great museum. We were amazed at the variety of pieces in this collection. Some very rare items that you would expect to see in a much larger museum. Hitler's tea set! Napoleon's good luck charm! Wow! The "spy" and exotic weapons were great. Be sure to visit the other museum next door... More

The Berman museum was very interesting and very well maintain. We enjoy looking at the different kind of weapons throughout the American History and the World War I and II history. The second floor Asian and other country artifacts was nice too.

If you have interest in military weapons from WW1 and WW2 you'll love this place. The weapons are from all around the world also. We took our kids here and they loved it. (ages 8, 11, and 15) The Pearl Harbor exhibit was very moving, they have a piece of the USS Arizona on display. All in all we had... More

This is a great museum. There are weapons displayed in this museum that you have never heard of as well as very rare examples weapons you may have heard about. The art works will stun you. Definitely a must see. The collection is so large that you need to revisit about every nine months.
