Excellent tour, volunteers , and museum. Well worth the drive. Ask to see the other hanger as it has some great cool stuff in it.

The best private museum we've ever visited! My husband is a retired B-52 Navigator and we were astounded by Dr. Byrd's collection and the beautiful layout of all the exhibits! A great national treasure that is a must see!

I was totally in awe, as I had no idea who Dr. Byrd was. He was brilliant and we were so lucky the day we went with friends, he was still alive and was at the museum. The museum is free and they do serve...More
