My family and I had a great time here. My son and I love airplanes and this place is filled with so much history. Great selection of military and civilian aircraft. The displays they have throughout the museum have a wealth of information of aviation history. There is also the sound of the Bradley Airport air traffic controls over an intercom as you walk through the areas of the museums which give this place a nice touch. We will definitely come back. Highly recommended!
This museum has a truly remarkable collection of aircraft in three hangers, one of which is almost entirely occupied by a B29 bomber in beautiful condition. They have military and civilian aircraft, all lovingly restored and cared for. The only down side? It would have been cool to have access to a few more of the cockpits. Several were marked as open sometimes, but only one was a available (briefly) during our extended tour of the museum. Also - poorly signposted! It's practically hidden. Perhaps with more visitors, they could afford more docents to oversee cockpit visits?
