Off the beaten path, located at a small airport in a rural airport. Maintained by some aviation enthusiasts who do a good job. Great place to spend a few hours wandering.

For no larger the airport, they always have a nice air show. This last year they had a 'cruse in' with some classic autos. If you drive from a distance, you might be disappointed but we have always appreciated the pilots who spend the money to come to our area.

I'm not a huge aviation fan but I did enjoy the museum. All the exhibits are clearly labeled and offer a lot of interesting information. My only complaint is they were setting up for a WWII dance party in the second hangar and you had to walk around tables and chairs to see the exhibits and it appeared they had... More

The curator was so very friendly and informative, it was like chatting with an old friend. Even if you're not an aviation buff/expert, you'll enjoy the museum and hall of fame because all exhibits are clearly displayed and described. Most, if not all, of the aircraft at the museum are flyable and the fly-ins held at various times throughout the... More

Off of Hwy 49, just outside of Asheboro NC, is a hidden treasure to be sure ! My husband and I discovered this attraction last week on a trip to the coast. We couldn't have been more surprised at what we found ! Two airplane hangars full of aircraft history and displays of artifacts related to aviation history in NC.... More

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.

A MUST for any aviation buff! You will see atrcraft from various periods and ALL are flyable. The exhibits are well maintained and very accessable to visitors. The museum staff is friendly and always ready to talk airplanes of all kind. The gift shop offeres not only model aircraft, but clothing and other items as well. There is a very... More
