(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., AP) — A museum featuring a fighter jet, yesteryear tanks and other military artifacts is preparing to reopen in a new Jefferson City location.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune ( reports that the Museum of Missouri Military History will debut its nearly 7,000-square-foot facility Sunday. The former space had just 2,000 square feet of exhibit space.
Located at the Missouri National Guard’s Ike Skelton Training Site, the museum is home to dozens of themed exhibits, including large weaponry.
In the back of the display area is a field tent set up for films. It’s expected to be popular with field trip groups that visit during their day at the Capitol. And in the front, children will enjoy a corner with real uniforms and items they can touch and try on.
