American Armory Museum

The American Armory Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization created to educate future generations about, and to impress upon them, the sacrifice, bravery and enduring significance of the United States Military.

The museum, which opened on May 28, 2016, is conveniently located off of Highway 80 in Fairfield, California, and appointments are recommended. The vehicles and motorcycles on display are either on loan or part of the museum’s permanent collection.

Visitors can experience an extensive armory of historic vehicles, including:

  • General Patton’s Jeep
  • World War II Missile Jeep
  • Rare 1944 Supermack Prime Mover — 1 of 10
  • 1944 Israeli M-5 Half Track Armored Personnel Carrier
  • FMC C&R M113 Prototype — #2 of 10
  • M60 Tank — British Chieftain and Scorpion
  • 1918 Harley Davison
  • 1942 Harley Davison XD
  • 1937 NSU Quick — 1 of 2 in the world
  • Other military support vehicles and displays

The museum does not charge visitors a fee to see the collection of vehicles. However, if you’re more inclined to enjoy a unique, one-on-one experience of wartime transportation, you can have an on-track vehicle ride for a $50 or greater donation. The museum welcomes the help of volunteers.

Visiting Information

The museum can accommodate groups of up to 100 visitors and has an onsite parking lot. The American Armory Museum is located at 4144 Abernathy Road in Fairfield, CA (94534). To contact by phone, please call 707-389-6846.
