Excellent collection of WW2 era and newer planes, helicopters and memorabilia. The military personnel working there are all friendly and knowledgeable. For a price you can even get a short ride on a variety of planes! Well worth the time.

The historic aircraft are beautifully restored. There are numerous displays and artifacts which would take most of a day to study. Also on display are engines used in aircraft dating to pre-WWI. The docents are extremely approachable and knowledgeable. All we met had previous military experience. They added so much to our visit! There are aircraft being restored in an... More

My wife and I attended at this museum not knowing what to expect. We found a very friendly and knowledgeable group of volunteers. The vintage aircraft on display were very impressive, I had never before stood beside WW II aircraft and never realized just how impressive they were. The restoration of these aircraft and all of the information provided was... More

Two of us (private pilots) wanted to visit some of the old aircraft we had either flown in or seen. We were excited to see many restored WWII aircraft, some of which were flying that day. All in all, a great day and great memories.

This place is a great value for what we paid. Many displays of old air history and facts. The displays range from old artifacts from Wolrd War II and the Vietnam War, scale models of various planes, to actual ready to fly planes. The exhibits are both in and outside. Many volunteers are around to answer any questions you might... More

They were working on the B17 bomber when we were there. You could do a guided tour or by yourself. Very interesting talking to the volunteers working there.

Nice little museum, full of volunteers that pay membership fees for the privilege. They are all very knowledgeable and a credit to the organisation. Donation buckets are everywhere, as they rely on visitors support to keep the displays in tip top condition. A few pennies and you can pick a plane for a ride, depending on your taste and budget$$$$.... More

Very nice informative museum. Many planes to view. You can pay and fly in an old War Bird for a short ride. Lots of action at this airport. Definitely worth a stop. My husband and I really enjoyed our time there. Easily 1 - 2 hours to take it all in.

My family went on helicopter rides, we saw the flight of a B-29 bomber and other vintage aircraft. Indulged in the vendors participation at the show.
