This comprehensive collection of vintage planes and autos is filled with treasures for young and old and is the best way to discover the past! It's an easy location to drive to and the staff are enthusiastic and informative.

I enjoyed this museum but thought it would be a little larger. It took only an hour to view everything. Nice collection of vintage planes and autos. They have special events on the weekends so check the website.

This is the second time we visited this museum and still found it very entertaining. The cars and planes were beautiful. They were refurbished and looked like new. A great place to visit and to bring children.

It's all about transportation and speed: flying, airplanes, bicycles, and automobiles. This has to be one of the very finest in the US, and not to be missed by any gearhead. We were there on a gray Saturday and nothing was flying, but on a...More
