The Museum of the American G.I. is home to one of the finest collections in the US of restored, running World War I, World War II, and later era military vehicles, including a WWI FT-17 tank, WWII Sherman tanks, M18 Hellcats, and various other tanks as well as historic uniforms and equipment used by American serviceman and women.

What really makes this museum unique is its ability to exhibit the vehicles and weapons in action. We restore and maintain the equipment so the public can hear and see the equipment move under its own power. All of the vehicles and equipment on display are fully restored and functional.
