45th Infantry Museum -
Military History Comes Alive in OKC
I've lived in Oklahoma City a long time and I just recently visited the 45th Infantry Museum for the first time. I didn't know what I was missing!
I took my son Ethan and my daughter Alyx there and we all had a great time. Alyx liked the mannequins that were dressed in the military uniforms from different wars.
Ethan liked the tanks and artillery that were displayed outside the museum.
I liked the weapon collection that ranged from the Revolutionary War to the Persian Gulf War. It had everything from bayonets to bazookas.
The World War II items included some pictures of the Holocaust, and I took the opportunity to give my kids a brief history lesson. Hopefully they learned a little bit.
After touring the 27,000 square foot museum, we explored the 15 acres outside. There were tanks, artillery, personnel carriers, planes, helicopters and more.
I was impressed with how large the tanks and artillery were. I was also glad that I was viewing them in a beautiful, peaceful setting. I would sure hate to be fighting against them in a war.
This museum is a great place for military and history buffs. The free admission makes this the best deal in Oklahoma City. Of course, donations are accepted and appreciated.
