  • Walked in the lobby and wasn't sure what to expect. As soon as we walked into the actual museum I was glad we stopped off. The museum is well done and they had plenty of curators around to provide commentary. Absolutely worth the trip if you are in town.
  • Such an incredible experience to take my family to this museum. My grandfather was part of the Mighty Eighth, so this museum has been on my list for years. It was worth the trip and the time and we will definitely be back. When you enter the main room and see the restored B-17 on full display, be prepared for the emotions to come rolling in. What a beautiful and yet powerfully nostalgic sight to see! It is a wonderful thing to pass these experiences and visuals on to my small children so they can appreciate what they have, as well as their heritage. Note - with a big family, it was more economical to buy a family membership than all of the individual entries.
