"This is my father's personal collection that's turned into a museum." said VP of the Russell Military Museum, Kyle Sonday. "We've been a registered museum since 1989. He's been collecting this stuff since the late 70s as a hobby."
The arsenal you see on the side of the interstate is the Russell Military Museum. It just opened for the season. 15 acres of US Military history. 200-plus fighter jets, helicopters, tanks and so much more.
"Any number of vehicles that could be considered a centerpiece for another museum." said Sonday. "The tanks the A-10 warthog, the landing vehicles. F15, F16. A number of very unique pieces that you won't find anywhere else."
The Russell Military Museum was recently featured on CBS 58 Sunday Morning. Watch that story here.
