Tank museum - Danville
Anyone been there? Supposedly there's 150 or so tanks on display.

Just went to their web site. Looks cool, kind of a long day trip from NoVa, but we usually head down to Kerr Dam fishing every now and then.

Sounds interesting, and less than 90 minutes from home.

I live here, never been to it, and don't know anyone who has. Mostly schools and out-of-town visitors go to it. I believe it does have some one-of-a-kind exhibits though.

It's a cool place. Not only tanks but a lot of related military history including small arms. Oliver North has filmed a couple of intros to his show there using some of the tanks as a background.

Made the trip down there today, and hit Peaks of Otter on the way back.

As far as the tanks (including artillery) - highly cool and very much worth it if you're any sort of military history buff. Lots of interesting vehicles from 1800's Gatling guns to a M2 Bradley.

Everything else - phbbbbtttttt. The clothing/uniform displays were disorganized, and the gift shop was closer to a toy store than a serious shop. To top it off, there was a pony-tailed security guard toting a revolver of some sort who was lecturing another visitor about the weapons policy. I ignored him and went about my visit, G27 tucked under my shirt.
