Clark Gable's raincoat.

Hitler's Gravy Boat: WWII Foundation Museum

If you ever wanted to see Hitler's gravy boat, Eva Braun's monogrammed china, Himmler's nightshirt, and Clark Gable's flight uniform, this is the place for you. The collection covers thousands of items, guns, helmets, uniforms, medals, etc. On a more serious note, it also includes concentration camp uniforms and memorabilia. A fantastic collection; come down and see it if you get tired of the many surrounding beaches.
