  • This museum is amazing. So many cool aircraft. We had Rick as our tour guide. I’ve never met someone with a deeper passion for sharing military history. Listening to Rick tell stories was probably similar to what people felt listening to Jesus at his sermon on the mount. At one point I couldn’t tell if he WAS Jesus or not. This place is hands down a must if you’re in the area! -Rhett
  • No matter where you are coming from,you should definitely visit this museum. We participated in the 2 hour guided tour and it was worth the time. Museum is definitely amazing but the volunteers are the heart of soul. The quality of the displays is second to none. Priced reasonably but very informative !! And do NOT forget to take pictures. It's a must visit for anyone who loves WWII history.
