  • Super great museum! Absolutely loved the control tower that you can go in and hear ATC. Would have loved to be there when some of the cockpits were open. Also would have liked to know there was a kid play area in the first hangar before walking in there and getting stuck because the six year old wouldn't leave.
  • Nice place for your kids who love airplanes, this place has like 4 sections you can check. At the control tower, you can see airplanes take off and land on the lake. The place has some nice little toys for the kids, we spent 2 hours here watching planes land and take off, and checking inside some of the airplanes they had in the yard area.
