My family and I visited this small museum on Good Friday before Easter. There are two airplane hangers filled with static aircraft displays, airplane models, uniform displays, and much more. We could have stayed for a least two or three hours if we tried to read and see everything.

Wow!, If you are an aviation buff or associated with aircraft in any way, then you must see this museum. Located at the Asheboro, NC airport it houses many vintage aircraft and displays. Some even associated with the Wright Brothers. You must take time to browse its contents and then stop at the gift shop for a gift to remember.

This was well worth the bit of a drive from Asheboro. Several amazing exhibits of war planes and hands-on displays. Very well maintained and friendly staff.

This museum consists of 2 large hangars with many great vintage planes & jeeps and a lot of history in the form of display cases & old newspapers hanging on walls. I went with my 16 year old daughter & we were only there for about 1/2 hour - we love museums but we are not the "reading" type. If... More

I enjoy most any kind of Museum so I didn't mind going to this one with my husband. We had a wonderful time and even our daughter enjoyed it. Lots of items to look at, facts to read and even real planes to touch! War clothing, guns, jeeps and all kinds of neat stuff. Would go again! Wide spaces if... More
