For a man of his stature this was an insult to this great General. It was mostly a military museum with just a small amount of information devoted to Patton. There were several rusted out tanks outside of the building that were just an eyesore and nothing else. The admission fee was not expensive but it was mainly a waste... 更多
This has the appearance of a private museum built by someone who loved the subject. The displays have a wide variety of depth of coverage, from immense detail on some subjects to a wide overview on others. The armor outside is mostly post WWII vintage, but there are a few key pieces (e.g. Sherman) pre-1945.
We've driven by here countless times, but never had the time to stop, as we wanted to be in LA before dark. This time, we were staying in Palm Desert for one night, and had a chance to visit. Our local PBS TV Channel shows movies (they call it "Hollywood at Home") every Saturday night, and right before our trip,... 更多
Not on the beaten path but very informative with facts and accurate displays. All parents with teen agers and younger would do well to stop and educate a population that have no clue what our seniors did to preserve our freedom 75 years ago. Displays are indoor and WWII vehicles are outside. I'm a war baby who's dad served with... 更多
We enjoyed our stop at The General S Patton Memorial Museum. As we get older stops like this are very worth while. The museum is modest and the presentation are not wow inspiring but they do inform you about the importance of this WW 2 training ground. I would recommend a stop for all WW 2 history buffs....
Interesting museum inside and entry only $6. However if you don't have time, or are visiting after hoursthere is still a lot you can see - for free. The war hardware is in the yard, all well signposted. And near the vehicle entrance arr some Leonardo da Vinci models - Catapults and the like (see photos)
We pulled off at Chiriaco Summit today to gas up and eat at the cafe, and made time to visit the museum next door. The museum is modest, the interior exhibits are excellent, and they tell about the WWII training with Patton (a true hero!) at that location. There is a wide array of firearms and soldier's gear that was... 更多
