See an amazing collection of army vehicles at this museum.
The Army's transportation story is told here through exhibits, models, and dioramas. Several million dollars have been used to build the museum to embody different modes of transportation during wars over the decades. Vehicles for air, sea, land, and rail are represented. There are also horse-drawn wagons from the Revolutionary War. With almost 7,000 items and 1,000 props, the collection features various artifacts, including planes, helicopters, tugboats, and landing crafts. Some unique items include the only surviving gun truck from the Vietnam War, plus the only surviving hovercraft to see combat in Vietnam.
Experimental aircraft such as the first helicopter to fly at the South Pole is also on display. You will get to see the war transportation accomplishments that have occurred since America's founding. There are items from World War 1, World War 11, Korean War, Cold War, Vietnam War, Grenada and Panama, the Gulf War, and the War on Terrorism at the Army Transporation Museum. Outside of the main building, there are pavilions, a railyard, Marine Park, and The Aviation Pavilion. This museum is one of the largest in the Army Museum system.
