Tank Demonstration Weekend
August 13 @ 9:00 am - August 14 @ 5:00 pm$15 – $25
Our summer tank demonstration weekend is where you can see some of the American Heritage Museum’s tanks including the M4 Sherman, M24 Chaffee, M26 Pershing, M18 Hellcat, German Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer and other privately owned military vehicles operating on our tank driving grounds behind the museum. Captivating historical narration will bring these amazing machines to life. WWII veterans will be participating in the exhibition!
Gates open at 9:00am and close at 5:00pm each day. Tank driving demonstrations are ongoing through the entire day with at least 1-2 or more tanks driving on the operations grounds throughout the day. Some WWII re-enactor camps with displays will be set up.
All three museums will be open: The American Heritage Museum, The Historic Aviation Hangar and Classic Automobile Barn. This is a unique opportunity to see some of the world’s most rare aircraft, extraordinary American classic automobiles, historic tanks, armored vehicles, military artifacts and much more.
There is over 100,000 square feet of space within the American Heritage Museum and Hangar combined.
