“Excellent display of firearms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

While visiting our oldest son for Christmas, we went to the NRA Museum on his recommendation. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Since it is a self-guided tour, you can go as fast or slow as you want. There is plenty of information at the display cases. Presented the firearms from several difference perspectives - sports / activity, law enforcement, military and protection. AND IT IS FREE!

This is worth seeing if you like guns. You can tour it in an hour -1.5.

“Nice collection!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

Very nice collections of firearms from hundreds of years ago through present day. It compares in scale to the collection at the nearby National Museum of the Marine Corps, though this museum is focused strictly on the weapons, rather than the history of how and when they were used.
