The National Rifle Association’s National Firearms Museum houses one of the most extensive firearms collections in the country. The spacious facility offers visitors the chance to view more than 2,000 historic firearms displayed in 13 permanent galleries. Artifacts brought by the Pilgrims as they left the good ship Mayflower, carried by the American militiamen at Lexington and Concord, handled by a young Annie Oakley, and more, are all on display. Civil War arms on display include domestic firearms manufactured both north and south of the Mason-Dixon Line and firearms imported by both sides. Exhibits span the history of handheld firearms—from mid 14th century guns to the latest in sporting rifles, shotguns and pistols.
