A parade of history
The Armor Museum hosts an operational collection of over forty armor vehicles including the mighty Hellcat tank destroyer, halftracks, armored cars similar to those that liberated the Nazi death camps, Vietnam era combat vehicles, and the massive M48 Patton tank that would have confronted Soviet armor in the disastrous event the Cold War became an open conflict.
The museum will also present operational replicas of several enemy vehicles as a dramatic reminder of the powerful forces that have faced America in its historic defense of democracy.
