Liked the whole trip to the museum. The first thing you see when you walk in is the Habu {The SR-71 Blackbird} It was awesome! The place was well kept and clean. Nice assortment of planes to look at from WWII bombers to some planes that should still be flying today. What would have been nicer is if you could... More

My kids loved the planes and simulators. They did a great job restoring the B-29. Awesome display on Doolittle Raiders

This was my second visit to the museum. This time I brought the whole family. It's a wonderful museum where you can easily spend hours and not realize time has passed. Informative with lots of hands-on stuff for young and old. There's a great section of science experiments for the kids too. Our young ones (boys ages 9 and 10)... More

stopped here on the way from Chicago to Vegas. A great place for a 60-90 minute break for those interested in planes or space or the Cold War era.

Great place for history, air, space, and military buffs. Especially enjoyed the Doolittle exhibit. Layout is a little confusing. Be sure to check out some of the videos for background information. Lots of planes we had never seen before. Also really cool to watch them do restorations on site. Cafe on site kinda expensive. Plan on allowing 2-3 hours.

Many aircraft on display with great write-ups of each. Even an area for smaller children to play. Very clean bathrooms! :)

Was there on a Sunday in May, I saw maybe 10 other people. The museum isn't too far a drive from Omaha.There's lot's of free parking. The museum is rather large with lot's to see. We spent almost 3 hours there and didn't get bored. They also have a nice gift shop

Stopped in while camping next door. It is a nice museum with huge military aircraft. It's more up my husbands alley. He and the kids enjoyed exploring. You can get discounted tickets at the state park next door if you happen to be staying or have a park sticker.

I've toured a number of military air museums across the country, but this may be my favorite. The ability to walk right up and touch the aircraft on display is an amazing sensory experience. Step into the landing gear bay of the massive B-52 bomber and you smell the hydraulic fluid and see the handwritten scribbles of maintenance personnel placed... More

This is one of the better aviation history museums that I've been to. Walking in the door you see the SR-71 Blackbird and within the museum are countless artifacts of the cold war and the race to space. There is a great deal of history here, so you can easily spend spend several hours.
