Welcome to the Russell Military Museum
The Russell Military Museum is deticated 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 vehilces across the world in a moment's notice or the bordem 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 Russell Military Museum is easily accessible from I-94 / Hwy 41. 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.
The museum is able to entertain all age groups and genders. We can handle large groups, birthday parties, boy scout outings, business conferences and more. Visit our pricing page to learn more about group rates.
We've worked for years to bring you the highest quality exhibits we can. Unfortunately, we're only able to do so much work in a day. We can use all the help we get, whether it's helping us restore vehicles, clean up after the day is done or just donate a few dollars - all contributions are put to good use.
