The SAC is a great place to spend an afternoon. Something for all ages and other attractions in the area. A treasure just off I-80!

We stopped by after landing in Omaha. Nice variety of planes with historical information and guides. Planes are for the most part set up in chronological order. Includes bombs and missiles used by the planes. My son enjoyed the simulator downstairs.

Admission $12... not worth it. Robins AFB in Georgia and Pensacola NAS in Florida both have better museums which are FREE ($0). Out in the sticks between Omaha and Lincoln. The day we went gas was $1.99 and I still think I wasted money and time getting there. Save your money and go see a worthwhile museum while on vacation... More

Plan to spend several hours, they have some really impressive big birds and lots and lots of historical and educational material. Museum is open seven days and admission of $12 is well worth it. Some of the exhibits will make you feel proud at the same time very sad and frustrated but hey, this is our life!

I'm a former SAC warrior that flew KC-135s. Stopped at the museum on a cross-country road trip. The selection of airplanes is outstanding. From B-17, B-29, B-36, B-52, the bombers of SAC are well represented. The tanker, missile, and recee side are less well represented though the SR-71 is the best displayed Blackbird in the world. It's well worth a... More

Wow! Incredible! I am almost speechless at this well thought out museum that has a living spirit in it's exhibits! From the cockpit that kids can get into and imagine to the vast amounts of aircraft that carried us through WWII. There is a beautiful section that remembers those of 911 and fallen members. Aside from all of there are... More

Where else on this planet can you see an SR-71 Blackbird and the mighty B-36 bomber (Six turning and four burning!) in one place? This is one of the best kept secrets in the aviation world. If you love military aircraft, DO NOT miss this jewel in Americas Midwest! Some of the aircraft are not in the best conditions, but... More

If you are an air force or military buff you will love this place. There were tons of aircraft, rockets, and space vehicles to see. We took our kids for a day trip here. There were lots of interesting facts, lots of interesting military information about the various planes, bombs, and rockets used and are part of the Strategic Air... More

While motorcycle touring though Nebraska I had to stop here. Love going to military museum's. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by seeing a sweet Blackbird hanging from the ceiling. I had a wonderful time viewing everything and learning some awesome history. Best part was when I sat in the pilot seat of a B52 bomber now... More
