Armed Forces Museum

Field review by the editors.

Wasta, South Dakota

This private military exhibit was opened to the public in 2010 by collector Tom Rancour. He acquired and restored vehicles, including jeeps and tanks from World War 2, and more recent conflicts. The small arms on display are from armies around the world.

Visitors can see a couple of jets and vehicles in the parking lot, but there's much more inside, along with a gift shop.
