I had a flight delay at the Monroe airport and made a visit to the museum. What a great time and a history lesson. The staff was really great and offered endless facts about the location and history of the flying tigers and Delta Airlines.

This museum has an amazing collection of military memorabilia, mainly from WW 2, but some items from civil war through present day. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend making a stop here.
