It costs $12 to see less stuff then when it was in Bellevue at Offutt. They nickle and dime you to do every little extra feature in the place. Not worth it. You would think the place that used to be the Stratetic Air Command would have the best stuff. Save your money and go to D.C. to see a... More

I made an unplanned stop here on my way across country. It was the best decision I made on the whole trip. I spent 3 hours in the museum. If you are a military vet or history buff you will love this place.

I took my elderly father here to experience this with me. There are many models of diverse air force planes to see, From cargo and troop transport aircraft, to Fighter jets and bombers, Prop and jet engine You can't go inside most of the aircraft, just view them up close from the outside or from the open bomb bay doors...

The best part of the SASM is right where you walk in. Seeing that amazing SR-71 up close is a real treat. Unfortunately, once you part with your admission fee to see the rest of the place, it's something of a letdown. Aircraft---and there are quite a few--are parked or dangling inside two hangars. You pretty much walk around and... More

Great collection of military and space aircraft. We enjoyed the exhibits and the multi-media exhibits.

We were looking forward to this place. Any air and space museum that uses an air force fighter jet as their billboard has to be great, right? Wrong! We have been to numerous air/space museums throughout the country. I really would not call this an air and space museum. It is more a hangar than a museum. It has 2... More

Pricy tickets then extra tickets for other things in the museum. No interactivity for kids, most planes closed, theater being used by insurance group so did not get 60 worth of value for sure!

I have been to the SAC Museum 5 times and never get bored with the place. I am a huge fan of aviation, in particular military aviation. This is the closest place to see the giant Convair B-36. I hope to see the Avro Vulcan, B-1A, and "Looking Glass" back on display soon. It would be nice if there were... More

This was an okay place....a little over priced. For some reason, you can only view the stars on the weekend, which is pretty much why we went. The staff is pretty rude....but it was cool to see the planes inside....we could have skipped this on vacation.

I had high expectations for this because of recommendations from friends but I was a bit disappointed by my own visit. We were here on a Wednesday afternoon and maybe weekdays are different from weekends but here is my experience. When we entered, were given a map but no directions of where to start or best way to navigate through... More
