    I'm compiling information on museums with Axis WW2 equipment on my site, the Axis History Factbook, and I'd appreciate any help with additions (text or photos) or corrections to the material.

    The museums section can be found at http://www.axishistory.com/index.php?id=56

    Thanks.

    Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

        The military museum in Sinshiem, Germany has a Tiger 1 that is cut-away so you can view the interior. They also have a wide array of small arms, artillery, and uniforms. They also have a JU-87 that was recovered out of the Mediteranian. Outside they have missiles and naval weapons on display. Great museum!!
        If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

          None actually.

          They mainly have Allied aircraft from WW II on. They have a nice example of a Rumanian Mig-21 and are in the process of rebuilding a Halifax bomber which was raised from a Norwegian fjord. During a World Trainer in 1995, we brought back 3 of the engines in the back of the Herc.

                Yes, been a long time since I was there but they had some good stuff last time I was there. The Battle of the Bulge museum in Stoumont, BE has some good stuff too including a restored King Tiger in front of the building. Otherwise the usual stuff; uniforms, small arms, etc.

                  Have you tried this site: http://www.nahverteidigungswaffe.de/index2.htm

                    I wonder if he's been to this one in Finland?

                    There is this one in Finland called the "PANSSARIMUSEO" Armor Museum at Parolannummi just north of Hameenlinna off the main highway between Helsinki and Tampere. They have Finnish A.F.V.s and even an "Armored Train" dating back from 1919 upto the 1960s, and maybe even more current ones. They have assorted British, French, Swedish, German, & Soviet vehicles of all kinds, but NOT every type, since some of them they had to 'capture' in the process of 'acquiring' those! I hope that this helps and I'm gleaning this information from the "Military Modeler" magazine, Vol.11 #7 from July 1984 which also happens to feature a 1/32nd Scale 'Diorama' of the Japanese invading Wake Island as constructed by the students of the Gilbert Junior High School of Gilbert, Arizona! There is a feature on "African Weapons" of the hand-held variety within this issue as well and they are very unique in appearance as well as applications I'd believe.

                      The Buffalo Soldier National Museum in Houston, Tx. has some Axis rifles in their collection. Some examples, an Italian rifle and a Japanese rifle with the Emperor's symbol still on it.

                          Nice site Marcus. Have you checked out www.feldgrau.com
                          This site has quite a bit of information on the German armed forces in WWII and is still a work in progress.
