What’s more fun than a day at the Armed Forces History Museum? The answer is easy – a day at the Armed Forces History Museum AND a ride on a fully restored, World War II M8 Greyhound. Viewing the museum is an experience in and of itself, but add a ride on this M8 armored car, and you have taken your visit to a whole new level.
While often mistaken for a tank, due to its large size turret with a 37 mm cannon, the M-8 is actually considered a 6 x 6 armored reconnaissance vehicle. The museum’s M8 Greyhound is complete with a Browning .30 cal machine gun (de-milled of course) and other accessories used in WWII. Your ride is sure to become the main topic of conversation as you convey this incredible experience as part of your museum visit. A ride on this vehicle leaves a lasting impression for years to come. Where else can a civilian go and ride on a military vehicle?
Don’t Miss Out
This is a “once in a lifetime opportunity” and is only available here at the museum. Take the ride of your life as the M-8 takes you “off road” behind our museum. Planning ahead will be well worth it.
