At the end of each month the Military Museum holds "Open Turret Days", a chance to climb on and inside the tanks which include a Buick built M-18, a Sheridan, and a Centurion Tank -- much of the collection still runs. On the inside, the fighting spirit is alive in their small museum, Johnson said "we have life size dioramas built around original pieces to show people what it was like when they were actually over there in that historical setting." Johnson added that its always a good time to visit the Military Museum, but Veterans Day makes the trip that much more special, "here you get to touch it and feel it and witness history."
The Military Museum of Southern New England is open everyday except for Monday (through the end of the year). Adult admission is $6, Kids are $4...For more information click here www.usmilitarymuseum.org
