  • This is a good place for a historic overview of the air force and its history along with how the Air Force impacted the local communities. First, the location has a number of aircraft on display for different periods in the Air Forces history. Combined with the information displays it provides a timeline of that evolution. This starts outside and continues inside the museum buildings. Next, as you enter, it displays become more personalized as it describes what those that served, and their families, went through and what they did during their term of service. As we continue past the entrance we enter a new hanger where history continues broken out be the Air Forces role, the planes and other technology used, by conflicts in history. This continues throughout the rest of the museum. Lots of informative displays. Some very helpful staff. A good place for adults and kids. Make sure you take a tour of some of the helicopters in the back. Tour guide was very informative.
  • This place is awesome! Bring your kids and let them run around and marvel at planes and jets. Or if you have time, take a tour. Honestly it's kind of shocking that we have something as amazing as this in our community, especially with free admission. Even the gift shop is fun, my son and I enjoyed getting Lego sets of the planes.
