The Museum was started in 1990 by Tony Harrah, the son of the late casino owner, Bill Harrah. The collection has steadily grown from a few Military Jeeps in the beginning to over forty vehicles presently. It has been recognized as one of the finest Jeep collections in the world. The collection contains several "prototype" Jeeps that were never put into production including the Davis 3 wheel Jeep and the 4 wheel steering Jeep. Most of the vehicles physical condition is either "as found" very good condition, restored and unrestored, whatever best represents the vehicle.
The Museum also encompasses all types or ordinance from missiles to hand grenades and everything in between. There are numerous small arms on display that were used in all major conflicts from World War 1 to present day. The collection also contains period field equipment and uniforms and various examples of the very unique artistic endeavvor known as "trench art".
There is are many photographs and paintings of military equipment that can be seen all around the museum.
The museum is open by appointment only made thru the curator from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Groups can be accommodated with a 200 person limit. No food or drinks are allowed. We ask that you do not touch the vehicles due to the nature of the paint that was used and the age of it. Oil from hand contact is very hard to remove.
