On behalf of myself the staff and all the volunteers here at the Museum I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the Rome and Floyd County community for the support we have received here at the Museum over the last 3 years. That being said I have decided to close the museum so I can devote more of my time to the commercialization of some technologies that I have developed. If you or your family have anything that has been donated or put on loan to the museum please contact us via email so we can make an appointment to return those items to you. Our email is [email protected]. If anyone is in need of mannequins or glass display cases we will be liquidating ours in the next couple of weeks. Also the portion of the museum that was my private collection is available for purchase. Please contact me privately for more information.

'Kinfolk Tales: Serving Pumpkins

For several months I have been helping a friend on a movie. After many hours of fun, out takes and hot brass here is the finished product. Filmed on location at the Compound, The Duke Museum of Military History and the FCWC. A special thanks to my good friend Jeremy Smith for letting me be a part of it. For those familiar with the Museum you will recognize several things. First the " little green monster" our 1973 Pinzgauer 710M, several of our full auto belt fed weapons ( yes the pumpkins did fire live ammo ) your truly as "rick ruder" and museum volunteer Savanna Marion wearing the sky blue unicorn onesie. A good time was had by all...even the nights we finished shooting at 0430 ( that's 4 30 in the morning for you civvies)......ENJOY!
