  • We took the tour and our guide made such a difference! So much to see with awesome pieces of history! So grateful for those that serve and have served our country. This museum is a must see. Love all the flowers out front!
  • The staff was very friendly, and seemed to enjoy to answer questions. It's not the largest collection of old aircraft, but it's a good couple of hours worth of exploring and checking things out. Longer if you want to read / listen to the plaques in front of the displays.
