“with over 100 vehicles including helicopter, tanks, halftracks, & ambulances ”

Welcome to the Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles (HMMV), a non-profit organization run by volunteers and funded by donations and grants.

The museum has about 100 vehicles including helicopters, tanks, halftracks, ambulances, and a jeep from every branch of the service plus displays of weapons, uniforms, engines, equipment, and more. The everyday necessities of a soldier's life, such as MREs, blend with unique vehicles like those used by the German army in World War II.

This hands-on museum invites you to see, touch, and even sit in vehicles that have been restored and, for the most part, are operational. Vehicles date from World War II but displays include items from World War I as well.

I stopped here specifically for my 12 year old son, but I was fascinated as well. You could spend hours here, though we spent about 1 hour. Lots and lots of military vehicles. You can get inside a tank, a helicopter, and a few others. Lots of displays of actual uniforms, equipment and rations. Right off the interstate, actually visible from it.

Phenomenal exhibit! Well preserved. The vets who volunteer put a lot of heart into their displays. Very kind and welcoming. I watched as two volunteers were setting up a Vietnam memorial wall and one began weeping as he was securing the thousands of names to the display. Heart wrenching but honest.

From the many historical photos, bombs, and weapons to the 50+ vehicles and helicopters, it'll keep you busy for 2 hours. This exhibit makes me proud to be an American.

Very cool place for any history buff, or lover of American military memorabilia. Free! Bathrooms on site, and dog friendly. Our dog dewey ran freely around the tanks outside, and then was invited inside to enjoy the jeep collection. Cute little gift shop rounds out this adventure. Donations for vets appreciated. I would recommend this to friends. Go check it out!

Nice quick FREE stop right off the freeway. My kids loved climbing in the huge tank and helicopter pretending to drive and fly. I loved the MASH exhibit as well. Many other vehicles to look at as well. Very nice veterans were running it when we stopped in.

We had a good time exploring the many vehicles and stories. It was really eye opening to see how small the inside of a tank is. Everyone was friendly and respectful. Great place to stop especially if you don't have a lot of military knowledge.

AWESOME place! There is no fee they only ask for donations. There is a TON to explore and look at. Inside are uniforms, missiles, a tank you can climb in, a helicopter you can climb in, and tons of other vehicles. My kids' favorite was a little scene of the war that showed an explosion. Even if the museum is closed they have a bunch of tanks and trucks outside you can walk around and look at. The big garage that has all the vehicles is a little stuffy when it is hot and humid outside but bearable. It is definitely worth the stop!!!
