  • We loved this place. Our son's retirement ceremony, after 27+ years was touching and beautiful. This museum has something for everyone to see. The layout of the history is amazing. Everyone was warm, friendly, and informative. The aircraft was displayed well.
  • Wonderful! The museum is very well upkept and the staff is very friendly! Alexander gave us a short tour of the place of his own volition! They have many unique planes that are hard to find and some that are only found here because of model specifications being so rare. They also have a great picnic area.
