This is a small museum but has several hangars filled with planes and details about them, from various periods of history. Don't miss the artwork section as well, inside. Some very interesting, signed pieces!

Incredible collection of military aircraft and artifacts. The museum is home to a great number of aircraft engines and components from early aircraft, along with operational WWI and WWII airplanes. Great gift shop with videos and publications, and several events are scheduled each year.

This is the second time our reunion visited this museum. Always a great place to visit especially with our veterans group - very clean, informative and great planes to visit and walk around.

Good variety of historic aircraft. Seeing the museum's World War II P-51 Mustang fighter power up was especially thrilling. You can schedule rides in several of the aircraft and we saw several taxi off to the runway.

Take the time to look this facility up online. As well as restored aircraft from America's aviation timeline there are many pictures and informative postings. There is also the opportunity to purchase some actual dual flight time on several historical machines. Aviators and enthusiasts must...More
