Visitor Tips and News About Atomic Cannon
You must enter at visitor's entrance off Route 715! The US Army Ordnance Museum is in the process of moving to Fort Lee, VA so the actual museum is closed. They are slowly moving the large outdoor pieces (tanks, guns, etc.) so for the time being, you can still get up close to all the remaining outdoor displays.[Jen Storey, 03/21/2011]
