This museum covers a large range of history. We learned some history of Camp Shelby that we had not known. There are very interesting artifacts and the museum is well kept.

They have all the different tanks from several wars, helicopters, plains and cannons. Once you go into the building it self it is a wonderful Museum of different weapons and tells about some of the Medal of Honor winners from that area.
