House of Tank Museum

A private collection of tanks from various nations and eras is all displayed in a former printing warehouse. I was told by the young woman at the museum entrance that the tanks are owned by a Wichita neurosurgeon who collects them as a hobby.

The tanks are identified with individual placards, but there is little other explanatory information or other trappings of a typical museum (gift shop, etc). I didn't make a count, but something like 25 tanks are on display.

A sign outside the museum cautions, "No Climbing On Tanks."
