Mott's Military Museum
MOTT'S MUSEUM - a very interesting waypoint!

Over in Ohio to see a few things and stopped at Mott's, a small but very interesting and well-equipped museum!

First off, the prices to get in are very LOW...this is something an entire family can do easily.

They have a great walk-through display from all wars and military conflicts, then a small snackbar and outside display to include Eddie Rickenbacker's house! (a fine replica, but you can go in it!)

Small giftshop with reasonable prices - something for everyone here! Worth a stop if you are in the area!

Background:

Motts Military Museum was founded in 1987 by Warren E. Motts of Groveport, Ohio who established the museum as a 501 (C) 3 not for profit tax exempt educational organization. The mission of Motts Military Museum is to: “To educate the public on the importance of America’s military past through the documentation, collection, interpretation, and preservation of tangible artifacts and personal stories of the men and women who served and are serving in the United States Armed Forces.”

Originally established in the Motts family’s 1870 residence, the museum moved in 1999 to a more modern 5,100 square foot facility with near four acres of land. The new building and grounds were given to the Museum through the generosity of Columbus Attorney Robert R. Richards who was a former special agent of the War Department during World War II. Over the next several years the museum grew in leaps and bounds. Donations poured in from veterans and their families. The museum secured many vehicles, military aircraft, and a Higgins Boat from World War II. In 2001, the museum broke ground for a new wing and as funds were available the museum’s volunteer crew, many of whom were professional carpenters, electricians and other skilled tradesmen, worked on the 5,200 square feet area. By 2006, the entire structure was completed and paid in full. Currently items are being selected and installed in this new wing.
