  • This was an unexpected pleasure. Lots of things to see and lots of very friendly and knowledgeable people to show you around. You can actually get in some of the planes. The fun thing was to “fly” in the flight simulators. Nice gift shop. Lots of parking.
  • This is a great museum. The exhibits are pleasantly surprising for this area. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The Aviation Camp they host is phenomenal. Hands on navigation, flight sim, and piloting. I highly recommend visiting and/or signing up for their camp(s). Educational as well as fun.
