The Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor has been redesignated as the U.S. Army's National Armor and Cavalry Museum. The collection has been moved to Fort Benning, GA and is presently not available for viewing. However, I would like to point out that the collection has grown in size due to the realignment of other U.S. Army Museums. We have received the following vehicles from Aberdeen Proving Ground: PzKw V Ausf A, Soviet T62 MBT, Soviet T34/76, US T3 Christie Medium Tank, US M3 Grant Medium Tank, M67 Flamethrower Tank, Mark VIII Heavy Tank (International). Other vehicles that have come in to the collection include an M22 "Locust" and a number of US Halftracks and other light armored vehicles. On another note - the US Army Ordnance Museum has also closed its doors and the collection has moved to Fort Lee Virginia.

Will the collections at Lee and Benning eventually be open to the public?

Cantigny has updated their collection with accurate paint schemes as opposed to generic olive drab.

The Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor is no more. The website that is listed on this site for that museum is not correct and instead connects the user to the General George S. Patton Museum of Leadership. Might as well drop that one. The renamed museum (with its world famous collection) is now located at Fort Benning, GA and has been renamed the National Armor and Cavalry Museum. In addition to the vehicles it had before moving its collection has expanded to include the following vehicles: LVT (A) 4, M3 Grant Medium Tank, Mark VIII Heavy Tank, M67 Flamethrower Tank, T5 Christie Convertible Medium Tank, T34/76 Medium Tank, M22 Locust Airborne Tank, M4A1E8 Medium Tank, PzKw V Ausf A Panther Tank, T62 Main Battle Tank and many more.

The Marder II and the PzKw II which were formerly part of the US Army Ordnance Museum at Aberdeen Proving Ground have just arrived at the National Armor and Cavalry Museum at Fort Benning GA. These are just the latest additions to the collection.

Looks pretty cool, thanks for sharing. When you do go, I'd really appreciate some details on their vehicle collection (and pics...)
