The National Firearms Museum consists of 15 galleries that display 3,000 firearms over 700 years of history.
"The Robert E. Petersen Gallery" opened in 2010 and features some of the world’s finest firearms engraving, exquisite British double rifles and shotguns, and the largest collection of Gatling guns on public display.
Currently on display is the “Hollywood Guns” exhibit which contains 120 firearms that were used in movies and television over the past 80 years. Visitors can view Clint Eastwood’s .44 Magnum Smith & Wesson from “Dirty Harry”, the Barret .50 Cal sniper rifle from “Hurt Locker”, and much more!
We are honored to receive this recognition and welcome everyone to come by the museum, we are open daily from 9:30am to 5pm and admission is free. If you’re not in the area, we have two other museums: NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Missouri and the Frank Brownell Museum of the Southwest in Raton, NM.
Again, thank you to everyone who has stopped by the museum and helped us earn this recognition!
