Located in the southwest Oklahoma town of Hobart, the current museum is housed in recently-renovated historic downtown buildings. The 9,500 square foot facility includes a gift shop, a show room and display gallery that showcases items from General Frank's personal collection. The museum's theme of Leadership, Patriotism and Service is shared through many unique items, one-of-a-kind pieces, top secret videos and by the life lessons learned by General Tommy Franks.
