West Point Museum

 

 


The West Point Museum is located in Highland Falls, New York - just outside the gates of the United States Military Academy. It's possibly the oldest and most diverse public collection of miltaria in the Western Hemisphere. UZI Talk staffers cookie and Sturmgeschutz recently visited the museum and found an amazing collection of small arms (and not so small arms). Here's a closer look at what you can find there.
