Visit one of the most unique museums you'll ever see.  This collection of military weapons and memorabilia is part of a private collection owned by Mel Bernstein, who claims to be the "most armed man in America", with 3,000 operational firearms, over 80 military-grade vehicles, a functional 40-ton T54 Russian tank, six 1000-pound bombs, and over 900 military uniforms.  The latest addition to his collection is the D-Day Omaha and Utah Beach invasion reenactment display.  After the tour, we'll keep the military history alive by stopping for lunch at the Airplane Restaurant.  Part of the restaurant is truly inside a Boeing KC-97 tanker, but the attached building is full of memorabilia too.  Lunch includes a choice of Swiss Mushroom Burger, Corned Beef Reuben, fried fish - all serviced with French fries (or slaw), or a Caesar salad with chicken.
Time: 8:30 a.m. board bus, 1:30 p.m. back at hotel

For over 50 years, the Iron Springs Chateau Melodrama Dinner Theater has provided the region with evenings of hilarious comedy and quality entertainment.  First though, dinner includes a choice of old fashioned pot roast or herb roasted chicken breast with salad, sides, and dessert. After dinner, head upstairs to the theater (wheel chairs can be accommodated with a little extra effort around the outside of the building and back in).  Tonight's show: "Disturbance at the Delta…or…Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy" is a turn of the century, classic melodrama.  Enjoy a hilarious adventure where you'll boo the villain and cheer your hero.  The melodrama is followed by a sing-along intermission and a fun-filled Vaudeville style musical review.  Audience participation is a must.  Enjoy the fun!
Time: 5:30 p.m. board bus, 10:30 p.m. back at hotel
