"The Jefferson Barracks Ordnance Museum has displays of ordnance from all branches of the military -- powder canisters, grenades, shells, missiles, torpedoes and bombs." ~ JB Attractions


"The recently opened Jefferson Barracks Ordnance Depot museum is a virtual treasure trove of military weaponry from the early 1900s through today.

"The brainchild of retired Navy Cmdr. Mike Brueckmann of Oakville, the museum at 94 Worth Road officially opened last November and houses ordnance from all branches of the military — powder canisters, grenades, shells, missiles, torpedoes and bombs.

"Asked what prompted him to open the museum, he said, “I had all this stuff in my basement, and my wife was yelling at me to clean up the basement and clean up the garage. A friend of mine had a warehouse space and once we got the warehouse space, ‘Well, hey, we’ve got all this space to fill,’ so we’ve still got more stuff sitting out in Arnold, but this is the big stuff (in the museum).”' ~ Call Newspapers   January 22, 2018
