  • Took my Granddaughter here and we had a great time, she loved being able to climb up into the cockpit of some of the planes and sit in the seats. The Museum is very informative, the Volunteers were all very helpful in explaining any questions we had. Recommended..
  • Probably the best aviation museum in the state of NY. Great place to visit during the summer especially in the month of May. Perfect spot to bring any child that wants to become a pilot. If you love vintage aircraft, especially anything from world war two, this is the place to visit. They have plenty of vintage birds that fly and it always a thrill to see this old birds in action.
