  • This place is amazing. Hundreds of antique airplanes and cars. And they actually fly the planes! How many museum do that? Awesome staff full of knowledge. Nothing bad to say about this place at all. 5 stars.
  • This place is fantastic for exploring the history of America’s automotive and aviation history. There is 2 hangars full of old planes and cars, mostly all of them run or fly. Amazing experience, worth every penny to see these amazing cars and planes. There are also many volunteers that would be happy to tell you about any history you’re interested in.
