3. There’s a Veterans Museum Hidden Inside the Armory

Tom Miskel, a Park Slope resident and veteran of the Vietnam War has been working on a multi-room Veterans Museum inside the Park Slope Armory, which is chock full of artifacts from the many wars fought by the United States from the Civil War to the Vietnam War. The museum was already in place before Miskel arrived, who also serves as a de-facto historian for the armory, but he’s been actively expanding, archiving and organizing the place.

The Park Slope Veterans Museum is currently open by appointment only but Miskel is so knowledgable, it is definitely worth a visit. Check out more photographs of the museum here.
