The Russell Military Museum is dedicated to educating the public about the conflicts and wars the US has weathered. The museum strives to highlight the many issues facing a country involved in a war. It can be easy to take for granted the magnitude of moving troops and vehicles across the world in a moment's notice or the boredom and tension a soldier can feel when all is quiet. It's just as easy to underestimate the power of military machinery until you can see it up close. Located conveniently between Chicago and Milwuakee in Lake County, Illinois, the museum is able to entertain all age groups and genders.
The Russell Military Museum comprises a collection over 40 years in the making. Situated on 8 acres, there are over 300 vehicles on display including tanks, jeeps, cannons, rifles, helicopters, jets and many unique vehicles you won't see anywhere else. Tank rides are available.
