Reviews for National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, VA

RatingCommentsDemographicsCreated
5 StarsExcellent!Great museum. It has thousands and thousands of guns - all in chronological order. The computer system for the exhibit cases gives you the chance to fins out everything. I just stopped by today and had the place nearly to myself. But what a difference from crowded places like the Smithsonian. This is a hidden treasure that is very easy to get to and for gun enthusiasts - heaven on earth!Middle age male04-23-05
