Museum of Badger Army Ammunition

Closed for Renovation

Click here to learn why we are closed for renovation and when we will re-open.

Building 207 is a 4800 sq. ft., metal clad concrete block building containing one large room, five office rooms, restrooms, and two vaults. We anticipate WDNR will use two offices and BHG will use the remaining offices for office and archive space, both vaults for archive, and the large room for museum exhibits.
