Home to one of the largest collections of warbirds, Military Aviation Museum displays planes from all over the world, including some of the first-ever war planes. Many of them surround a U.S. Air Force hangar that's been converted into the attraction's main museum. Almost every plane has been restored for flying by the Fighter Factory and the Aviation Institute of Maintenance. Check the website for a schedule of air shows, which include planes from World War I and World War II. A reference library and exhibit of artifacts tell the stories of the planes on display outside.

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! One of the volunteers that work there and, I don't remember his name. He drives a brand new red Hyundai. He is one of the nicest people I ever met in my life. I really enjoyed talking planes with him and he must be an Aviation or history genius. Because he really knows his s**t. The planes are absolutely amazing and you can get close enough to smell them. Just don't touch. Surprisingly many of them are still used regularly. I am eager to go back. All the way from NYC, JUST to see some of those beautiful creations in the air. In their element.
Great place to visit. Pay the price to go here and enjoy the Military Aviation Heritage these people are helping to maintain & sustain. This is one way of ensuring our military history shall never be forgotten. It is a special place well worth driving out of the way to visit. Well done to the Maintainers and Aviators who do what they do because they love what they do!!!
