This is a must see if you are in the area. Indoors the have three full size aircraft with many exhibits showing different rockets, missiles and projectiles. Also have rifle and handguns from various war eras. Outdoors are a variety of full sized decommissioned airplanes and helicopters. It is a very impressive to visit and it is free.
