FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) -- The Patton Museum at Fort Knox is scheduled to reopen to visitors on Friday after a three-year, $5 million renovation.

The facility once focused on tank artifacts, but now offers interactive exhibits that tell stories and relate lessons on leadership from 1775 to present day.

One of the featured exhibits is a large collection of artifacts belonging to Gen. George Patton. A fire truck that responded to the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attack on the Pentagon will be added in September.

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and Fort Knox Commanding General Maj. Gen. Jeff Smith are expected to speak Friday morning at a rededication ceremony.
