Airborne and Special Operations Museum reviews
Love the history and patriotic pride - and all the dedicated (and a little kooky) volunteers and staff. They really care for the Vets.

The C47 plane hanging from the ceiling was great. All of the displays were authentic looking and they were out in the walking areas. Very well done.

Absolutely loved coming here with my battalion in Sea Cadets. I love how realistic and educational it is without being boring for adults and kids alike. I loved the dummies in it, they really set things off. It's free too- unless you want to do the simulator, which is $10 per person I think. There's also a gift shop if you wish to get anything. Overall a great local museum, I'd definitely recommend for everyone!
Great time! If you're into history, this is a definite place to visit. Very relaxed set up that guides you through the years of the beginnings to today. Not for really young kids because there isn't a lot to hold their interest, but a great place for upper elementary and up.
