Springfield Armory

Standard

 

There are a lot of things to see in Springfield, Massachusetts.  In the past I have been to the Basketball Hall of Fame and the Natural Museum.  I enjoyed them both.  This time, Badona’s brother took us to the Springfield Armory where the Springfield rifle was made.  This place was free, but there is a donation box.  On display are long rifles, war rifles, and all kinds of other rifles, not just Springfield rifles.  The museum is in the original part of the building that was built in 1777.  The building itself is interesting, and the machinery that made the guns is also cool.  The best section, to me, was the mishaps display.  You have to see it to understand.  If you are ever in Springfield, Massachusetts, look up the Springfield Armory.  It’s well worth your time, even if you don’t like guns.
