  • Absolutely wonderful for all ages. My children and I sincerely appreciated our tour guide (Bob), he did a fantastic job showing us around. His stories and details captured out attention right from the start. The museum is so beautifully kept and wonderful to have this for the public! The kids got so much more out of this in real life than they ever could from a history book, but I feel they will appreciate history class in a whole new way now. Thank you!
  • This is a nice place for all ages. We didn't even schedule a tour , and one of the tour guides came over and let us go inside the planes inside, and he answered our questions. It was very informative, and moving to learn so much. My girls which are 11, 9, and 6 enjoyed our trip there. The museum is free. It is defiantly a must do. During colder weather you can go inside the outside planes, but not during extreme hot weather, but it gets over 100 degrees inside the planes. So I will tell you if you want to tour the planes outside, go closer to fall.
