Interesting, but small airplane museum. Not a lot to see and do. My 3 grandsons, ages 9, 7 and 3 liked looking at the airplanes. No interactive exhibits.

Although the planes were stationary they hung above our heads. Wonderful to see all the different era planes, along with a Hall of Fame area with multiple photos of great aviators both men and women! My company loved the experience!
