Fort Knox is situated about 30 miles south-west of Louisville and can be reached from there by following Route 31W. Although famous for its Bullion Depository, it is in fact one of the largest military installations in America and houses about 30,000 military personnel. It is the U.S. Army's Armor Center and many modern armoured vehicles can be seen all around the Post, for instance M60 Patton and Ml Abrams main battle tanks, as well as older M47 and M48 Patton tanks in reserve areas.
During the Second World War a number of armoured vehicles and guns captured by the Third US Army were sent to Fort Knox for study and evaluation. After the war these vehicles aroused public interest and were collected together, along with various pre-war Allied vehicles found on Post, into a building on Old Ironsides Avenue. In May 1949 this was dedicated as the “Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor” in memory of General George S. Patton, Jr., the renowned commander of the Third US Army, who had died in a road accident in December 1945.
The museum was moved to its present location on 11th November 1972, the 87th anniversary of Patton's birthday, and it is now one of the largest in the U.S. Army Museum System. The museum building (number 4554) was built using only donations from armour enthusiasts and organisations from around the world. An extension was added to the museum building recently which has allowed more of the museum's vehicles to be displayed within it. A fund-raising campaign is in progress to pay for further expansion of the museum and any donations for this are gratefully received by the museum. The museum building is located in Keyes Park, beside the Godman Army Airfield. It is near the main entrance to Fort Knox and is reached from there by turning left off Chaffee Avenue down Ballard Avenue, and then down Fayette Avenue.
The museum's collection is not confined to fully-tracked armoured vehicles, but also includes half-tracked and wheeled military vehicles as well as artillery (particularly anti-tank guns), uniforms, small-arms, and even helicopters (there are two on display in the museum building and one on the Post). It also has, of course, a great many exhibits related to its namesake, General Patton. These are on display in the Patton Gallery and include his personal jeep, his mobile headquarters van, and the Cadillac limousine he was in when he had his fatal accident. This car has since been restored to its original condition. Also on display are his famous ivory-handled revolvers, some of his uniforms, and many of his personal effects which were donated by his son Major-General (retd.) George S. Patton. The museum also depicts the history of Fort Knox itself, from the American Revolution to the present day.Most of the museum's vehicles cannot be displayed in the museum building because of lack of space. Some can be seen on display in Keyes Park surrounding the museum, others are stored in warehouses, and the rest are scattered around the Post. The museum has three warehouses; Nelson Hall (building number 1539), Austin Hall (number 1538) and Trover Hall (number 1531). The latter is the one used mainly for restoring and maintaining vehicles. Austin Hall is also known as the LST Building because it is in the shape of a Landing Ship Tank.

Unique ID: 1305
Serial Number: 2762 (source: N. Baumgardner).
Registration: “USA 30121290” painted on forward hull sides.
Name: “REBEL’S ROOST” painted on turret sides (previously “THE PHOENIX” painted on upper glacis).
Other Identification: “24 I” (previously “M-24”) painted on front right mud flap. “34-?2?” (previously “1942”) painted on front left mud flap. White star markings painted on turret sides (previously also on glacis).

Originally lend-leased to France, this M24 was returned to America by U.S. Air Forces Property Disposal in May 1972. It is in running order. It was found to contain some Algerian coins, implying that it had seen service in Algeria. It may well therefore have served with 12e Regiment Chasseurs d’Afrique which was reorganised in 1955 with a squadron of M24 ‘Bisons’ and deployed in Morocco in a garrison role. This unit was sent to Algeria in April 1958, and was eventually repatriated to France, being disbanded in 1963. The tank was on display in the museum building as “The Phoenix” before going into storage in one of the warehouses. It is now back on display in the museum as “Rebel’s Roost” (source: D. Moriarty, N. Baumgardner).

Though 250 T23s were produced late in World War II, there are very few still in existence. This one was acquired by the museum in August 1976 from Fort Drum, New York, where it had been on display outside a veterans’ club. It had been reconditioned in 1971 by 594th Maintenance Detachment at Fort Devens, Massachusetts.

This vehicle was acquired by the museum from the Armor and Engineer Board in April 1977. It remained for many years on display in front of their building (number 1109B) beside Sixth Street (on display nearby was an XM9, USA 8C8468, a prototype of the M9 Universal Engineer Tractor).
On 4 August 2010 it was moved to Richardson Motor Pool, and it was opened and examined on 6 August 2010. It was found that most of the internal components are missing, including the main gun; the barrel is welded in place. There are handwritten notes throughout the interior turret area that appear to have been left over by the test/evaluation teams. There is no vehicle data plate, and there appears to be a 55 gallon drum in the engine compartment so it is assumed there is no power pack. (Source: D. Moriarty).

Other Identification:

This is a prototype of a vehicle designed for beach landing. The base tank, an M4A4 serial number 20026, was one of a number of tanks sent to York Safe & Lock for fitting with a T6 swimming device (source: K. Laughlin). The T6 consisted originally of large buoyancy tanks in front of and behind the tank (only the rear buoyancy tank remains on this tank); the T6 was later standardised as the M19. In addition this tank has been fitted with six spigot mortars at the top of the glacis set to fire forward and intended to clear beach obstacles. It came from Quantico in a vehicle trade; its duckbill track will be removed to put on the ‘Cobra King’ Jumbo and the track previously removed from that vehicle will be put on this one (source: D. Moriarty). It was previously on display, with the Quantico Chi-Ha, at the Navy Memorial Museum in the Navy Yard at Washington, D.C., and before that at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

Other Identification: Walkway fixed on top of left side of hull. Cast muzzle brake.

This M47 was displayed on post for a number of years, possibly near Serio Hall. It was then displayed for some years in the museum with its glacis and left turret side cut away in order to show its interior, and in about 2002 it was pulled out of the museum and moved to Richardson Motor Pool. (Source: D. Moriarty).
This M47 has an unusual cast muzzle brake which indicates it was probably one of the original pilot vehicles of the M47 series.

It has jettisonable-fuel-tank racks fitted at the rear, and it is in running order. It was stored in the LST Building before being moved to the Richardson Motor Pool (source: D. Moriarty).

Serial Number: Pilot number 1

Name:
Other Identification:

This T28 is the only surviving one. Two pilot models of the T28 were built but the second one was destroyed by fire during one of its trial runs and was subsequently scrapped. It had been believed that this one had also been broken up for scrap during the Korean War. However it was discovered, intact, at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, and acquired by the museum in March 1975. It was transported in pieces because of its excessive weight and refurbished and emplaced by the 76th Heavy Equipment Maintenance Company in 1980. Its engine and final-drive have been removed.

Unique ID: 1320
Serial Number:
Registration:
Name:
Other Identification: Cylindrical muzzle brake. A white square containing a white cross has been spray-painted on the glacis and left turret side. Damaged front left mud flap.

This M47 is believed to have been found at Fort Knox and acquired by the museum in 1978. It was seen in the Boatwright Maintenance Area in 1983, with areas on the glacis and left turret side marked up as though it was to be cut open for display. However, a comparison of photographs indicates that it is unlikely to be the same cutaway M47 that was later displayed in the museum for some years (particular differences include the muzzle brake and headlamps).
