It covered things from the civil war to the Gulf war. It was a good way to spend the afternoon. Don... More

General Patton is one of my heroes. I did my Army basic training at Fort Knox in 1971 but never visited the Museum until February, 2017. Please-don't anyone else wait that long. The Museum is changing so it will be accessible without having to enter the base. Please do yourself a favor and visit soon.

This museum was great. I really enjoyed how it was later out and had quotes everywhere. You got to see personal items and got to really get the feel of how General Patton viewed character and leadership! Wish I would've had my grandpa here he would've loved it. One note is that if you go now they have winter hours... More

The Park is dedicated to US armored forces of the European Theater. On 36 cement circles are monument stones, with a center tall stone, surrounded up to 3 smaller stones. The circles are connected by a cement walkway. The stones represent armored divisions, supply &tank battalions & campaigns. I stopped photographing at the 10th circle. Not until seeing an aerial...

Free entry with donations. What a great visit just down the road. It has a ton of displays covering the Generals history. The whole family enjoyed it.

In 2017 the old access gate right off Highway 31-W will be reopened and the general public will be able to visit the museum, which will be fenced off from the rest of post. BUT ... This museum is but a shadow of what it used to be. To get anything out of this museum now, you have to be... More

General George S, Patton was one of the most famous armored force generals of World War II. This museum presents the artifacts from his life in a static display format with placards explaining each artifact in details. It traces his life from childhood, thru his education and his time at West Point and on to WWII. The artifacts are extensive... More

The Patton Museum is free to get in. They have great memorabilia of his and a lot of his military vehicles. The best part of this museum is the heavy focus on leadership. There are quotes and lessons on leadership at every turn. Would highly recommend this museum to any young group of kids or anyone who wishes to be... More

This is a must see experience if you are in the area. There is no admission fee and there are a lot of interesting exhibits. There are many items from General Patton's life from his toys to his military jeep and car. It was very impressive seeing all his medals and learning about his life. We spent about 3 hours... More

I always enjoy visiting these kinds of places, it's interesting to see our military gear up close and personal. It's small but worth checking out.
