Enjoyed a free activity - spent a couple hours there. Good history of that area and how it shaped the air force and plane/weapon development. Not a whole lot to keep the kid's interest, but as an adult it was very interesting.

We spent two hours here on a cloudy day that was a little too cold for the beach or pool. Free admission and a LOT of neat exhibits. Several dozen decommissioned Air Force planes/jets outside and a large museum inside. Definitely worth the trip, even...More
