Very cool find! Hopefully Mr. Tony is in when you're there. Make sure you talk to him. Knowledgeable about anything and everything military. Visited with my cousins when they flew out to see me. Unexpected find and fun visit. Highly recommend a stop by.

This museum is accessed through the Oren Dunn Museum. Mr. Lute was an informative and helpful tour guide. He has memorabilia starting with the Civil War and going through Afghanistan. Really interesting and well worth our time. We were sorry to not have more time!!!

Not sure what time they open, we went in the early afternoon. You could try checking out the Oren Dunn City Museum website, or give them a call.
