Hubby was really looking forward to visiting and he was not disappointed. Well displayed and the owner/curator is very knowledgable (and a delight to converse with). While he was perusing the implements of battle, I was taken with the artwork, advertising, and the antique cigarette packs. We enjoyed our morning at this museum.

I cannot write a review that can even reflect how amazing this place is!!! As a history major and a Masters in Museum Studies I really enjoy museums but find so often let down by the lack of engagement, collection or worth the money. This has it all, as a graduate who has specialised in places such as IWM in... More

Myself and my friend from England visited Larry's museum on a road trip in September. What an incredible collection of pieces that he started to collect in his teen years. Speak to the man in person when you arrive - he is kind and intelligent and has many stories to tell. Well worth a stop!

We saw this as we drove by late at night. I had missed it when researching our trip. Knowing how my husband loves this genre, we found the phone number and called the following day to find their hours. We had been planning to visit Kitchen Kettle Village and after that, we left the car parked there, and walked the... More

We stopped in at this museum on a whim and I was extremely impressed with the number and variety of pieces of military history on display. The owner was on hand and was quite knowledgeable about the displays. I will go back to this museum again.

We have enjoyed visiting this museum on many occasions. I do not know the hours of operation, it seems to be hit or miss. If you like edged tools and weapons, there is a knife store operating out of a house right down the road on rt340. That's where we take guests when the museum isn't open. The owner/operator of...

A tremendous place. It's not huge, but it is bigger on the inside. There is a lot crammed into a small place. He has one of a kind items as well as quite a number of 2 of the 3 three known to exist. Many variations of a piece that you never see in one place. Larry is incredible when... More

A very nice and surprising exhibit of a private collection of weaponry. If you are nearby - - it is worth the stop. If you are interested in military history - even better!

I have stayed in this town many times and never seen this museum open. I would loved to have visited. They need to better post their hours of operation. Sorry.

This doesn't compare well to its counterpart in London, The Imperial War Museum. The curators simply don't seem to have put the same amount of effort into this restaurant. The displays were hardly inspiring. Pity.
