Open House 2020

Due to state mandated COVID-19 restrictions, we are rescheduling our 2020 Tank Farm Open House to 2021.  We will announce a  new date early next year.  This annual event in Nokesville, Virginia draws thousands of attendees each year to learn about history, honor our veterans, see demonstrations of  historic military vehicles and equipment and experience some of what will be encompassed in the future Americans in Wartime Museum.


In the interim, stay connected with our social media pages to view the  collection of military vehicles; hear the recorded interviews of those who served,; and see  our ongoing restorations of vehicles, equipment and other artifacts.

​We look forward to seeing you in  2021!
