A large military museum begun as a private collection by Judge James Osborne. The museum has military displays from the Revolutionary War through the Iraqi and Afghanistan Wars. Many planes, helicopters, tanks, cannons, etc. are displayed outdoors. There's even a bunker display outdoors. Great photo ops.
