A small museum where you can enjoy different aircraft. The staff is so helpful and answer all your questions about the planes. You can try the simulator too.

As a USMC aviator very much enjoyed this museum . . . not very large - can be viewed in 2-3 hour max. Emphasis is on "Miracle on the Hudson" - well done.

While small, my family loved this place. Good hands on items for even small kids. Loved seeing the damaged plane in person. A great short stop
