Uniform Collection
Primary interest is in US and Japanese uniforms and equipment. American uniforms begin with Spanish-American war through Desert Storm. We display US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Army Air Force, USAF and Coast Guard. Japanese uniforms begin with Menji Period and extend through WWII.

Japanese Uniforms include: Uniform of the emperor's veterinarian (Royal Household Horse Keeper), Lt. Honda, Uniform of the Akagi's Medical Officer, including a very rare "Pearl Harbor Book" given to the officers who participated in the raid, Uniform of 3-star Admiral Junji Uozumi of Admiral Yamamoto's staff.

Sword, Rifle & Pistol Collection
We have over 400 rifles and pistols dating from the US Civil War, through Vietnam. Also, an extensive library and large amounts of artwork. There are over 80 Japanese military swords on display. One example, is the sword of Japanese General on Chi-Chi Jima, who was hanged for cannibalism. Our sniper collection is complete with every type of rifle and scope variation. Also, a near mint Japanese sniper armor shield, and machine gun shield.
