The museum guides are excellent! I'm not an airplane/war buff however, I really enjoyed touring the museum.

It was an emotional experience aboard B17 "Sentimental Journey" WWII plane on Aug 4th. We had driven by several times during the week but after taking pictures the day before I just had to go inside. My Dad was a pilot in WWII, shot down over Germany and spent 15 months in a POW camp, Stalag Luft 1. It was... More

We recently spent several hours here looking at all of the vintage aircraft. It's not a large museum like the National Air & Space museum but nevertheless is still very interesting. There are several docents (most are retired military) that volunteer to spend their time with each guest party that are very knowledgeable about each item in the museum.

This is one of our favorite places to take family. It's a gem of place- with the younger generation learning less about history, this is definitely a catalyst to learning more about Aviation History. You can even book a flight on a classic aircraft. Definitely a bucket list item... Great for the older teens to jumpstart their interest and younger... More

Milady and I were treated very well. Mr. Seal was our docent, and I don't believe he could be bettered. Very knowledgeable, very capable, very friendly. Another volunteer, Mr. Blocher accompanied us, and added more detail and guidance. Wow! Thank you.

We have visited this museum twice, once this March and a year ago. The museum is great and affordable, with a variety of WWII aircraft, as well as a few that pre-date WWII. The volunteers on the museum floor make it special, but the rides are unbelievable. This review is about flying. Last year the B-17 was not in service,... More
