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.

Where else can you see an airwothy B17 and get to crawl through it. So much history and information to see and read about. The tour was most informative and interesting. Kids loved it!

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

As an Air Force family, we are no strangers to aircraft in museums or air shows. After two tours at the Pentagon, we were regulars at the Air & Space museum in D. C. and and have even been to the Air Force museum in Ohio. The true gem of this small but packed museum is its volunteers and what... More

The museum may look small from the outside, but yes, it surprisingly is packed with wonderfully informative displays with detailed explanations on the planes. The information on the veteran cemeteries in Europe was also very poignant. The docent led tour in the back room with the restoration of old planes was a delightful ending to our tour. We were also... More
