I was so impressed with this Museum and all it had in it. It brought back many memories of what my Dad had told us about Plattsburgh Air Force Base (what a shame they closed the base).Will visit again to make sure I see everything.

One of the old buildings left over from when the airbase was in town, small and a quick easy to pop into and out.

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.
