  • A very nice aviation museum. I liked the murals behind the planes to give the impression of how things were.

  • The museum had all sorts of planes from the very first to some of the latest. There were also several old cars and helicopters. The building was roomy and comfortable temperature wise. There were several associates working on the exhibits that explained some of the things they were doing with the planes. There were also display cases with various items about planes and aircraft carrier. Also displays about pilots and the stories about them.The Vietnam era helicopter display was very interesting because it was the war going on during my high school days. They had a Blue Angel and Thunderbird jet outside. When the bus was leaving we also passed more planes fenced in and signed but not accessible. This is an excellent place to take kids and very inexpensive,
  • I loved seeing all these old planes. It was so full of history and the tour was really interesting. I was referred due to Tuskegee display but it was a little small.
