  • Great museum with lots of local history of civil and military aviation. Definitely worth a visit. Also a great place for young children to get hands on experience.

  • A must see for any aviation enthusiast to learn how this area contributed (and still contributes) to the industry history. Nice view from the tower. Lots of exhibits and activities to keep kids...

  • Well, it ISN'T the Museum of Flight or the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor collection. It IS a good collection of aircraft. Most were built by local companies. They have a great collection of artifacts AND the terminal building. Billy Mitchell, Jimmy Dolittle and Amelia Earhart are just a few of the famous legends of aviation who have walked those halls. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Excellent museum. Very nicely curated exhibits. The restoration of the airport was nicely executed. Tons of interactive portions for those who prefer hands on history. The outdoor air field is full of planes of all sizes as well!
