A packed war museum, complete with Nazi booty, oddly wedged into a suburban neighborhood next to a kiddy playground and community pool.

North Louisiana Military Museum

Only one word needed to describe this place: incredible! From the Civil War to the Middle East, this small museum covers it all. For such a relatively small space, it would take a couple of days to fully enjoy it.

Ernie, the curator, is a Vietnam Vet and you can tell he loves this collection that he and others have built. He and the City of Ruston are hoping to expand to a larger facility which would triple the items that could be displayed but are now in storage.
