This Museum used to be located in Omaha, and is know conveniently located about 1/2 way between Omaha and Lincoln, just off of the Interstate. Nice grounds, but the Museum itself is pretty crowded with aircraft - it probably is ready for expansion.

This place was an interesting place to visit, although I feel it was way over priced for what you get ($12) to walk yourself around. I believe guided tours are offered, which may be more preferable for people wanting an in-depth experience. If you have kids this place is for you as it feels more geared towards children.

My primary reason for going was to see the B-36. Such an incredible aircraft. All of the older Cold War era aircraft are indoors. Pretty amazing. Do not expect highly polished aircraft. Several of the planes have been outside in the weather for some time and show it. Still it is a very impressive showing. The B-52 and the B-36... More

This is a beautiful museum with many planes and displays. Perfect for a visit on a hot and humid summer day. Worth the price of entry. No rushing and not crowded with plenty of room for everyone. They even have flight simulators for $5 a person.

My boys, ages 7,11,14 absolutely loved this place. True like most souvenir shops things are over priced, but the plans and simulator are worth the cost of admission. I do wish they had more hands on exhibits, but overall would absolutely recommend for just about anyone.

If you are a history buff, this museum on air and space vehicles of WWII and later years will be an attraction you will not want to miss. It is totally awesome! It focuses on the history of the Strategic Air Command and events during its peak era. Many retired jets, planes, and space vehicles are on display, along with... More

I can't believe I grew up so close to this place and never went until a family getaway at Mahoney State Park was rained out one afternoon. This place is awesome! First, it's HUGE. It has two LARGE hangers full of historic planes and space craft that you could literally touch you're so close. I've never been to a museum... More

Spent the majority of the day here and wish I had more time. The displays are simply amazing. Their specs are listed with each display which, unless you're in to that sort of thing, can be very boring. But the history that accompanies each one is interesting. I spent a lot of time reading about the Strategic Air Command itself... More

Outstanding museum. Not the biggest in the US but it is a specific museum dedicated to Strategic Bombing history and is first classs. It is literally 5 minutes off I-80 so there is no excuse not to take a break and visit this excellent museum.

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
