  • I was not expecting too much but was totally impressed. Lots of planes over lots of land and fun facts in the entrance museum. A fun day spent there. A must see.

  • We had a blast visiting the museum. There is more to see than you can possibly see in a day. The displays share the history as well as who donated the items and it is just amazing to read all of the stories. The gift store has great toys and gifts to help remember the visit as well. We loved that there is so much space to roam without feeling crowded. We will be back.
  • What an awesome place. So much to see. The "Flying Fortress" hangar was very interesting. My 5 year old granddaughter has recently been in the mode of wanting to know more about flying and space. This place held her interest for quite awhile. She enjoyed reading about the women in the Arizona section. They also have a small playground that gave her a distraction when she was getting tired. I found the variety and history found here fantastic.
