National Museum of Military Vehicles

Our Mission

“To honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans and their families. To educate next generations on the history of American freedom. To preserve and share historic military vehicles.”

Dan Starks, Founder

In 2012, Dan Starks bought a tank. It was the start of something big. Since then he's acquired hundreds more tanks, jeeps, trucks, motorcycles, landing craft and other military vehicles. It's now the biggest collection of military rolling stock in in the U.S. outside of the armed forces themselves.

Unknown Soldiers Weapons Vault

There is a smaller museum within the museum featuring a historically significant collection of firearms -- from the first sniper rifle used in combat to the fully authenticated musket that fired the first shot in the Revolutionary War Battle of Bunker Hill.
