Visitor Tips and News About Dragon Man's Military Museum
Funny, amazing, wide-ranging (guns, Elvis, Coke machines, hot rods, WWII memorabilia, etc.). We bought some targets and took pictures with Dragon Man. Since we were not going to be there on Saturday (when he gives the two-hour tour), he graciously gave us a 15-minute version. Even so, the 15 minutes was still the highlight of our trip to South Dakota and Colorado -- for our boys and arguably for my wife and me. Unless you're averse to guns, the five minute ride outside of Colorado Springs is definitely worth the trip.[eric schansberg, 07/25/2012]
Fifteen minutes with the Dragon Man will give you more memories than fifteen years with a boring man.
There's a lot more to it than the military museum. In fact, you can only tour the museum at one time on Sundays, and only in the summer. I think that makes it even better.[Roy Munson, 04/02/2012]
