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.

You walk in and there is an SR-71 suspended from the ceiling right in your face...Wow! Sidling over to the ticket / information booth I met "Lefty" the host that day. What a hoot to visit with...a charming gent full of aircraft knowledge. I curved around to the right (under the SR-71)...that is one big aircraft to stand under...huge considering... More

I have always wanted to see an SR71 Blackbird since I was a youngster and read about them. Well, you can get up close and personal with one at this museum. It was a check off the bucket list for sure!! The entire museum is a crown jewel. The aircraft are professionally displayed and the interpretive information is very good.... More

My team of 10 took a work outing today to visit the museum. While there is clearly a number of quality historic aircraft and pieces of information the overall experience could have been so much better. A Number of the exhibits to include some of the more interactive ones like the simulators were not open for business and staff indicated... More

Besides the history of the planes of SAC there is always something for the kids to interact with. Enough cant be said about this museum.

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
