Ropkey Armor Museum

The Ropkey Armor Museum is proud to celebrate our 30th anniversary! We are deeply grateful to all those who have supported us through the years and thankful for the many visitors who have shared our enthusiasm.

We have enjoyed many fantastic experiences over the years, which have led us to where we are today. We would like to share some of these in a photo essay presented during the upcoming months via Facebook and our website.

We are honored to have the privilege of paying tribute to the veterans who have served our country and of supporting those who go into harm’s way to defend it.

We look forward to sharing this opportunity with you.

Just east of I-74, north of State Road 32 on county road 150 North in Crawfordsville, Indiana, resides one of the finest collections of U.S. Tactical Military Vehicles in the country.

This is a place where the harmony of man, machine, and emotion can be found over a 50 acre site known as the Ropkey Armor Museum.

Originally located on the northwest side of Indianapolis, Fred and Lani Ropkey moved their extensive collection to the rolling countryside of Montgomery County in 2004.

The museum is housed in a large indoor facility where the music and memorabilia reflect a time when man and machine served as one.

The museum is a great destination/location for car clubs, veteranís reunion groups, educational tours, and other civic organizations.

The museum is open March-December. Come and visit the Ropkey Armor Museum and experience the emotion of our military heritage.
