  • As a teacher and historian who has visited a lot of museums, this is a must see. The exhibit are excellent. Staff were very friendly. We were lucky enough to be there to talk with a docent who was a pilot in a b17 and he had quite a story to tell. The whole space has been built and designed with care. It really paints a picture of the experience. It is a fitting monument to the men who fought in the air over Europe. This is worth driving out of your way for.
  • Fabulous! Worth every penny. If you get an offer from a docent named Randy to listen to his lecture/talk during your visit SAY YES! What a great storyteller! I enjoyed the sections on POWs and the WASP. Both were very informative.
