I took my aging Father-in-law to this museum. He was delighted, but also found the amount of display a bit overwhelming. The adjoining hamburger restaurant was a good break between viewing.

This is quite an impressive display. They have done a really nice job on documenting aviation history. My husband and our friend were both in the Air Force and they really enjoyed it.

This museum is absolutely LOADED with interesting exhibits...almost too many to absorb. Suggest you allow 2-3 hours. It is so eclectic...WW1, WW2, commercial flight, women in aviation...a real wealth of info. Then there are the outside planes! It is definitely worth the visit.

Amazing museum with far more than you can see in one visit. You'll see items and displays rarely found. Do not miss a trip out to the tarmac to see the aircraft.
