Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

If you are a history lover you will enjoy this place as it contains the original tanks and uniforms from WWI and WWII that have been restored and very well preserved.

The building looks more like a small storage place but once you enter inside it looks quite big.

If my review is useful, please give me a “helpful” vote.

1. Bottom Line Up Front/frame of reference for my remarks. I am a retired Marine Corps Infantry Officer and have high expectations of military museums (I have visited over 30 in the United States). This museum is very well-curated and has beautifully-restored vehicles (all vehicles are operable); you can tell that the staff is very passionate about their work. It is definitely worth visiting if you are in the area and is worth a day trip even if you are not in the area.

2. Details of my visit

2.a. Date & Time. Friday 18 December 2020 (morning).

2.b. Other patrons. During my visit, there were no other visitors.

2.c. Length of visit. I was at the museum for 45 minutes; I have visited the museum previously so I did not spend as much time as I did on my initial visit. I estimate it would take 1 1/2 hours for a person visiting for the first time.

3. Location. Check the museum’s website for current information.

4. Access

4.a. Passenger vehicles. The parking lot can be accessed by any type of passenger vehicle.

4.b. RV and tractor-trailers. I consider the parking lot to be easily accessible by over-size vehicles unless the parking lot is at maximum capacity. I recommend looking at the museum on Bing or Google Maps to confirm accessibility

5. Parking. Un-paved / no charge / approximately 75 spaces.

6. Admission. Check the museum’s website for current information.

7. Hours of operation. Check the museum’s website for current information. Be advised, the museum is not open 7 days/week.

8. Permissions/prohibitions

8.a. Weapons. I did not see any signs prohibiting concealed/open-carry weapons but I recommend calling the museum to confirm.

8.b. Photography. Permitted.

8.c. Pets and service animals. There was no sign indicating otherwise but I would assume that pets are not permitted and service animals are permitted.

9. Type/nature of visit. Visitors may conduct un-guided tours; I do not know if guided tours are available.

10. Layout of museum.

10.a. First Floor. Contains the majority of the exhibits (primarily crew-served weapons, vehicles and tanks).

10.b. Second floor. The second floor is a walkway (open to the first floor) lined with display cases (only minimally stocked at this time) that contain uniforms and memorabilia.

11. Exhibits. Not all-inclusive.

11.a. Recruiting and home-front propaganda posters. Items such as this are often overlooked but the World War II posters indicate the importance of civilians on the home-front to sacrifice in order to support the war effort.

11.b. World War I cavalry exhibit. Horse-mounted soldier with period-correct uniform, weapons and equipment. This is a very nice, detailed exhibit.

11.c. Nash Quad transport truck. This is the oldest piece in the museum – built in 1916. It also has two companion pieces: French 75mm gun and caisson. World War I era (1916-1928).

11.d. Renault FT-17 tank. This is a very small tank that mounts a 75mm main gun. World War I era (1917-1918).

11.e. Willys ¼ ton MB Jeep. World War II era (1941-1945).

11.f. Ford GPA Seep (amphibious Jeep). This vehicle looks like a miniature DUKW. World War II era (1942-1943).

11.g. Dodge Command Car. World War II era (1942-1944).

11.f. M-3 Gun, Motor Carriage. Half-track with a 75mm anti-tank gun. World War II era (1941-1943).

11.g. M-8 Motor Carriage. M-5 Stuart tank chassis with a 75mm Howitzer. World War II era (1942-1944).

11.h. M-18 Hellcat Tank Destroyer. Mounts a 75mm gun. World War II era (1943-1944).

11.i. M-24 Chaffee light Tank. Mounts a 37mm main gun. World War II era (1944-1945).

11.j. M4-A1 Sherman medium tank. 75mm main gun. World War II era (1942-1943).

11.k. M4-A3 Sherman medium tank. 75mm main gun. World War II era (1942-1943).

11.l. M-274 Truck, Platform, Utility (AKA Mechanical Mule). This is a very unique, small vehicle (more or less a child’s wagon on steroids). This is only the third one I have ever seen in a museum. It is a ½ ton, 4-wheel drive vehicle that was used to: transport light loads, string field communication wire and mount crew-served weapons. It was introduced in the 1950s and used throughout the Vietnam War and into the 1980s.

11.m. M50-A1 Ontos anti-tank vehicle. This is one of my favorite tactical vehicles and is the only one I have ever seen in a museum. It is a small, fully-tracked vehicle, powered by a V-8 engine and mounts six 106mm recoilless rifles. Like all other museum pieces here, it has been beautifully-restored. It was used throughout the 1960s.

11.n. Mark II Patrol Boat, Riverine. With .30 and .50 cal machineguns. Vietnam War era.

11.o. AH-1F Cobra attack helicopter. Vietnam War era.

12. Handicap Access. I consider the museum to be handicap-accessible. There is an elevator to access the second floor.

13. Child friendliness. I consider the museum to be child-friendly

14. Amenities.

14.a. Restrooms. Restrooms are available and very clean.

14.b. Water fountains. Water fountains are available.

14.c. Food & beverages. Food and beverages are not available.

14.d. Gift shop. The gift shop

The museum holds a good collection of military tanks and vehicles that served in combat missions for the US Armed Forces and often have been a part of defense systems of other countries as well. There were a handful of tanks and combat vehicles like jeeps (and even a Humvee) on display. Each of the machinery was accompanied by a description which described the circumstances which led to the conception and development of the respective model. The bulk of the displays were the tanks - they included models like M24 Chaffee and M5A1 Stuart (Light Tanks); and M4A1 and M4A3 Sherman tanks (Medium Tank). Other than those, the Ford GPA Seep (Amphibious Light Truck), 4x4 Willys MB Jeep, a Humvee Light Utility Vehicle and an M3 Motor Gun Carriage Halftrack where among the displays that really caught my eye. It was insightful to read about the development of some of these military hardware and the role the American involvement in ware had in fast-tracking their development. For instance, one of the military patrol boats River Mark II which was on display, was developed for the warfare in Vietnam which had a uniquely vast network of shallow inland waterways.
The other focus on the museum was on the uniforms of combat and non-combat troops, especially around the World Wars time-frame. The strong emphasis given to uniforms of women in the armed forces is commendable. There was also a sizable collection of wartime posters which was arranged throughout the museum and they do shed light into the sacrifices of people at the warring frontline and back home during times of conflict. A special exhibit at the front features the dog tags of every single Texan Vietnam war veteran, it is an inspiring tribute to every resident of the state who served in the military!

My father was a World War II veteran and on the front wave invasion of Tinan and Tarawa islands. He was home on leave when they drop the bombs on Japan. Also had an uncle who decommissioned all of the Navy ships at the Navy base in Orange Texas. I have tons of silver plate items that I need to donate to the museum of the American GI

We visit whenever we're in town. It's closed early in the week, but open the second half. They are adding exhibits at a steady pace. They have a very nice collection of military combat vehicles, a WW-1 era ambulance, and quite a few uniforms.One unusual item: a WW-1 Renault tank!! Really cool! Worth a stop, particularly if you're interested in WW-2 or military stuff.

We have passed this museum many times and finally stopped to visit. It’s not a large museum but the collection is great, with WWI and WWII vehicles beautifully restored and in pristine condition. Anyone interested in military history will love it.

Have passed this building many times. Finally, did a road trip to see it. The website says it was open on Wednesday and it was even though the Maps app said it was closed. Glad we believed the website. The admission price was only $6 for adult. I thought it was reasonable. There are World War I and II posters on the wall. There is also an exhibit of the Texas Vietnam vets dog tags. These were Texans who died in the war. The vehicle exhibits was very informative. The special exhibit on D-Day was also very good. It is small and very good. It is worth visiting.

The museum is a great venue in its own right, but when combined with a reception it was a unique experience! The reception was upstairs overlooking the main floor of the museum, which was open to all the guests. There was a elevator for those who needed one. The museum was easily accessible from our hotel.
