National WASP WWII Museum reviews
Excellent museum on the history of the WASPs of WWII Clean, well maintained and thought out. Arranged so the you can follow the history of the unit from inception to being de-activated at the end.... more »
It is surprising to find this little gem in the middle of nowhere Texas. Trip Advisor doesn't have the correct website, but a quick Google search found it. This museum is open everyday except Monday..... more »
Very cool. I managed to visit during the WASP reunion and got to meet some very fine women. The ladies that actually flew out of Avenger field are a treasure that won't be around for long. Strongly recommend it before there is nothing but memories and a museum left of these pioneering women.
Fun step back in history and a good break on our cross country drive. Great information on the WASP program and more importantly the women themselves.
