Westerly Armory
Reviewed 3 March 2018

When my son and his bride got married they had their beautiful wedding reception there. We could use the kitchen there and the room was big enough to hold the people we had there. We all had a great time. They had fans going no air conditioning.May 2016

This is a museum that has a lot of military artifacts and other items donated by families in the area. Most of the displays are of WWII uniforms. There is one display of hand carved airplanes of WWII. There are two Civil War uniforms and several dresses from the early 1900’s. The Westerly band practices at the armory.
At the end of the tour the docent said, "Think of all the people who make money off the war(s). Jay agreed and called them, “Bankers.” Hopefully the armory will be used not to glorify war, but to warn people not to promote it.

We were most surprised to find an unusual and impressive museum in the Armory -- and much more than military. Besides local memorabilia and local militaria, the museum showcases important pieces from Rhode Island's and the nation's history. One of the best parts is the tour -- because we had the opportunity to see almost all of the Armory building itself - from (and we learned this) the headhouse to the drill hall -- to the tower - to the giant cellar. The mannequins (and there are many) display not only the uniforms of local veterans but wedding gowns and the ladies of the community who have had influence in fashion and politics. We particularly enjoyed being taken around to see the highlights and then we could go back to peruse the collections. We will go back. Don't miss the cellar; it's not finished but it's amazing. Our group ranged in age from 6-75 and all found something of interest.
