Great exhibit of aviation. Nice variety of aircraft including some helicopters, reaper drone and nighthawk. Friendly staff but just a bit expensive a family to go

So much history!! The guides are all very knowledgeable and extremely friendly! Very impressive collection of not only aircraft, but from the Nazis to Vietnam. Even more when you venture outside...

No words to explain how amazing this place is!! It’s a very surreal experience, and the people who work and volunteer there are wonderful. There are many workers there who were soldiers themselves, and hearing their knowledge is something I’m grateful for. The planes are breathtaking and the displays of knowledge and artifacts engage oneself. They also have a library of Life magazines, how cool! Highly recommended taking anyone there!!
This place is amazing! Such a great location for a flight museum. The view is stunning during sunset! $20 per person, open till 5 pm. So many cool airplanes and the history behind each of them. Very well layout from indoor to outdoor. Highly recommend checking this place out when in PS!
