  • This museum has a surprising number of historical planes. It is well done. Most of it does not have air-condition. Enjoyed our visit.  more »
  • A nice selection of planes and helicopters from various time periods. I particularly liked bare engines on display. There was one that looked just like a human heart. Mind blowing, really, for those.....  more »

  • I love military hardware and planes so I obviously enjoyed this. Four hangers of restored aircraft, many of which were specifically used in combat. The details for each one with its individual serial number are given on plaques. The veteran working as a volunteer was very helpful, answered tons of my questions, and knew so much about every piece on display. Highly recommend. I may go again if the opportunity arrises.
  • Fantastic collection of WW2 aircraft, the majority of which they keep operational and fully functioning. 4 hangars house these marvelous machines in addition to many parked around the grounds outside. The amount of care and restorative work that they put into their aircraft is top notch! The art gallery is just as impressive as the many displays in the hangars. Each time our family goes, we see something new. A marvelous preservation of history and a wonderful memorial to all those who put their lives on the line for us. A "must see" if you are ever in the area.
