Went several times but was unable to access the small museum. However all the fun is on the outside where there are two fantastic aircrafts on display, one B58 Hustler, and a F111 Aardvakk.

If you are curious about the history of Plattsburgh Air Force Base then this is for you. Small but informative with relics from the Cold War. Plan on thirty minutes.

Many artifacts from the Airforce base which was such an integral part of this area's history. The facilities have been repurposed and getting to the museum provvides access to the "genuine" base.
