Great for gun enthusiasts. Shoot guns you my never get a chance to get your hands on! You can see lots of different types of guns, old ones. There is also a diorama of still life animals in a recreation of their natural habitat.

I had no idea what to expect here. I was a little surprised that the admission fee was good for two days; why would I need that? Once inside, I knew. The exhibits and historical pieces were unbelievable. My wife really doesn't care about guns, one way or another, but even she was amazed by what she saw. Almost beyond... More

You will love the history represented in this museum even if you aren't into the history of guns. Personally I would highly recommend you plan a long day here! Worth the money and the time to add it to your day plans!

Along with excellent examples of just about every firearm used in America since the Conquistadors and Pilgrims, it also has prototypes from John Browning, an 18th century gunsmith's shop, a 19th century gun factory portion, and much more.

Anything you want to know about firearms is probably here. Only about 40% is displayed, so it will likely be different on your next visit. Incredible staff.

You don't have to be a gun-nut!! There are 5 museums under one roof, each one has a flavor all its own. We went in the facility at 8 AM and left when they were turning out the lights. The Firearms Museum itself could be a day of wonder. The Indian Museum is humbling...look...really look and study the life of... More

We toured this museum as part of the Globus National Park Tour. The amount of guns and types of guns on display is unbelievable. Very interesting and I am not into "guns".

Amazing display of weapons from shows to the real life westerners from the first weapons to the current. I've never seen a larger display of weapons from all over the world.
