Muna Museum

Mitten in Hessen, im ländlich idyllischen Vogelsberg, bestand nahe dem Ort Grebenhain von 1936 bis 1945 eine wichtige militärische Einrichtung der damaligen Luftwaffe der deutschen Wehrmacht: die Luftmunitionsanstalt Hartmannshain.

Der Bau und Betrieb dieser Munitionsanstalt (kurz: Muna) bei Grebenhain, …

Hi Olivier,
as Robin stated MUNA means Munitionsanstalt. It a bulding in the shape of a swastika to prevent catastropic destruction in case that something explodes. In this MUNA they produced rounds for 8,8 cm Flak. It inside a forest to prevent detection from the air. It´s a vast area with countless bunkers for storage. The collection is vast, not only vehicles but small arms, uniforms pictures an lots of small items. If you want to visit take note that the museum is not permantly open, only by appointment. Anyway, the annual Open House is a great event with delegations of US Army visiting with their vehicles.
Here´s their page: muna-museum.de

Cheers

They have 3 M60 A3 and a M728. I used the M728 as a base to take topshots of the SHORAD.

AFAIK, there must have been dozens of MUNA´s in the Reichsgebiet. I remember seeing signs for MUNA´s mostly near US Army installations. I don´t think that the Imperial German Army, the Reichswehr and the Wehrmacht could have gone with only 2 or 3 installations.
