An earlier post dealt with the Danbury Railway Museum.  Not too far away in Danbury is another interesting museum: the Military Museum of Southern New England. According to their web site:

The Military Museum of Southern New England opened in 1995 as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of our nation’s military history. The original intent of the museum was to maintain the memory of American Tank Destroyer units of the Second World War.

Although quite small the museum has a number of indoor exhibits. Outside is a very congested (many vehicles in a quite a small space) but interesting collection of tanks, armored vehicles, howitzers etc. It was quite hard to take pictures as everything was very close together and you often couldn’t get far enough away.


Grumman TBF Avenger (I think).


Tank Gunner


Supermarine Spitfire (the plane often referred to as having won the Battle of Britain) with reflected UK flag.
