I only wanted to see the SR71 Blackbird. You can see this one for free, as it is on display inside the main entrance. I didn't think I would have time to take this in and make it to my next destination, so I cannot comment on the value of the ticket versus what you get to see as I... More

Ample parking with excellent handicap accessibility. Awesome place to visit with new things happening all the time. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Could use a better eating area with more choices. They have placed many new simulator machines in areas for adults and children to use. This helps make it more exciting. The air and space displays are very... More

What an interesting jewel of a museum tucked near Ashland, NE (30 min outside of Omaha) easy to get to - and top notch displays of exciting military aircraft and even some space-craft. Must see for any military history or aviation buff!

My family was recently visiting Omaha and decided to drive out to see this museum. It IS a bit of a drive, but if you love warplanes, it is WELL worth the trip. The building housing the museum is really nice, and the rockets outside really set the tone for what awaits when you enter. The lobby features an SR71... More

Its a bit out of town from Omaha and in the middle of nowhere, but worth the drive. You need to like looking at and appreciate historic military planes to like this place. If you do, then this the place for you. Everything is displayed to allow full view of all sides of the planes. The descriptions of the plane... More

This is a great collection of airplanes from WWII and the Cold War. The focus is on bombers (naturally, being the Strategic Air Command museum) but they also have several fighters and recon airplanes. The dramatic SR-71 display alone is worth the price of admission. The space display could maybe use a little work (some of the pieces weren't labeled,... More

We were taking a Spring Break road trip through Nebraska to visit family and see some off the beaten path sights. Glad we spent a few hours at the Strategic Air and Space Museum. I loved seeing some premium examples of planes that I built models of as a kid.......WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Cold War era stuff.......just cool stuff. Mid week... More

We have been to many larger museums in the US that offered more for less money. That said, the layout of the place is a kind of you get out of it what you put into it deal. We enjoyed walking around and looking in and around the planes, read many of the posters and hit up every penny machine... More

This is a wonderful museum right from the start of walking into the door and seeing the SR.-71 staring down at you, all the others restored aircraft and especially the section that reminds us of the bomber production that went on out at Offet Air Force Base.
