  • I was quite impressed with the museum and our host, Kent. They have an excellent variety of airplanes which I haven't seen in other aviation museums.

  • We had such a great time on what is sure to be the first of many visits! It was an incredibly well put together museum, the displays were top-notch and filled with information and pieces of history! The tour was worth the extra $5.00. It was a great way to get perspective and be able to ask questions. Not only did we learn about the aircraft, but about the painstaking details that go into restoring them. Definitely worth the time and money!
  • Wow! I’m thrilled with the overall experience! My wife and I spent four hours in the museum and easily could’ve spent more time! I really thought the whole experience was well curated and I appreciated the personal stories that accommodated each of the artifacts. Additionally, learning about each plane in-depth was really nice. Finally, speaking to the team that helps maintain/repair the planes was equally fascinating. Please note, I’m choosing to not post more than the one photo I have included as they have asked any photos are for personal use. Just know the planes are in excellent condition and basically all are airworthy! They have an air show every other year (or so we were told) and they will have their next show this September (2022). If we didn’t live in another country, we would certainly come back for the air show.
