  • It is great for anyone who wants to read about aircraft history. I found it rather cool. It is pretty small and the one attendee definitely managed to stand in one spot the entire time so don't expect much as far as tours go (It is more of a DIY experience). Inside and outside are both rather small, but for a quick and cheap day trip it's worthwhile. I took young children with me and they thought it was very exciting. Outside you can climb the control tower even though it isn't posted anywhere that you can (we missed out because we didn't realize until we had left the museum to the parking area that you could climb it). You literally just walk in, go out to the outside viewing area, walk that circle until you've seen it all (doesn't take long with kids), and then go in to see what's inside. Very small, but inside you can sit in and crawl through a plane. I can't stress the amount of information available if you have time to read it! Well worth the cheap admission fee.
  • Fun stop ! Interesting history that was fun for adults and kids. Interactive cockpits and helicopters that the girls enjoyed. Not crowded and had nice paved walkway around the outside portion making it accessible for all which I thought was awesome.
