On a road trip, I budgeted 2.5 hours for this stop, and was just barely able to walk through all the rows. Definitely should have had more time to be able to truly appreciate and enjoy all of what the museum had to offer. Lots of very rare and unusual firearms and even a few pieces made as one offs by gunsmiths.

More than just guns. Also includes other weapons collections and some quirky memorabilia. There's a section of preserved execution hoods and nooses that's disturbing and not suitable for very young children, so you might ask how to avoid that particular area if bringing young ones.

By far the best arm collection. I gave it a solid 2 hours and felt as if I barely scratched the surface. I loved the guns through the eras route. Starts from the stone age weapons all the way to recent conflicts. What a trip through history! I will definitely make a return trip or seven!

Each time I visit I take a different route through the dozens of aisles, and each time I have to call it quits after just a couple of hours, as it is just too much to take in. It is inconceivable (yes I know what that word means) an individual such as Mr Davis could have amassed a private collection of over 14,000 firearms. My hats off in his memory and for the legacy he left the within the city of Claremore, OK of his fantastic museum.
