Allegheny Arms and Armor Museum

The Allegheny Arms and Armor Museum is a non-profit created to preserve and maintain military vehicles, armor, aircraft, watercraft, weapons and associated militaria. We do this so that present and future generations will have this material available to study.

This is a very cool place that has armored vehicles from all over the world from all time periods. They also have a jet, helicopters, and a Coast Guard boat in a man-made pond. When I went the actual museum part was closed. It was still light out so I strolled around the grounds. Very neat! I can't wait to go back when the museum is open.

This seems to be the usual assortment of tanks, armored personnel carriers, a helicopter and plane or two. The pond for the Coast Guard boat is a nice touch.
