Wyman Living History Museum adds Korea-era tank to its permanent collection

A few people lingered June 27 at Wyman Living History Museum, their eyes trained on the road. Finally, the tractor-trailer came into view. It turned from U.S. Highway 40 into the museum’s driveway towing its long-awaited cargo: an M47 tank, an Army green behemoth with a fighting weight of about 100,000 pounds. “I was just pleased to see it,” museum founder Lou Wyman said Tuesday.
