The second oldest Army Museum in the country is on Arsenal Island. It first opened to the public as the Ordnance Museum in July of 1905.

There are twelve hundred weapons on display. One of those weapons was used during the Revolutionary War. Army Veteran Morris Merle of Davenport says the museum is a reminder that we are a free nation because of the people who served from the Revolutionary War to today.

Merle served during the Cold War between the United States and Russia from 1958-1961. He helped to control supply depots in France and Germany.

The museum also features a U.S. Howitzer from the Civil War, 1903 model rifles, anti aircraft machine guns, and manufacturing history pertinent to the Rock Island Arsenal.

Neonia Wick-Markin served in the Army. When she looks around, Wick-Markin says the museum is a huge reminder of everything we hold as values.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 4pm.  Admission is free. It is located in Building 60 on Arsenal Island.
