Great place to see airplanes! There's a lot of history on this museum. Airplanes parts and pictures. There's an airplane part with some small yellow svastikas design and mannequin with a German uniform with svastikas as well, I only thought it was weird because I was not expecting to see this in this museum. I love the small airplane with... More

Saw this little museum and thought that I would give it a try. Wow, what a little gem! Great collection of planes inside and a half dozen or so in the graveyard outside. The constellation that they are working on is fabulous as are some of the items on display. If you love aviation history then you should visit.

We loved this place. My husband is a retired pilot. Nice to stroll around and look at all the airplanes. We found it interesting.

Folks who don't have a pre-existing interest in historic planes might not consider an hour here well spent, but pilots, veterans, or even mere civilians like me who devoted time in their youth to building scale models of warplanes will find this small collection fascinating. In my book, pride of place goes to the Messerschmitt BF-109 WWII fighter in the... More

We stopped in at this little air museum that turned out to be quite interesting. I've seen some of the spanish built Me109's, but here they have the genuine article. Not a big museum but with AAA we paid $9 for three of us to tour around inside and see some cool machinery. Bonus out back is the well worn... More

A must stop to see historic working and not so much planes. Very interesting and educational. Staff there are friendly and so so enthusiastic. A real learning curve and an eye opener if you imagine your self in the cockpit!! Well worth the time. It's all on ground level, inside and outside.

A really nice museum if you are a aircraft buff. Great displays and refurbished aircraft make it well worth the trip. The airport terminal next to the museum is also worth visiting.

We all enjoyed this, but especially my 8 year old son. He is an airplane buff. A good family activity.

A great small museum 1/2 hr from the Grand Canyon or Williams. Get up close and personal with lots of air plane equipment.

I really found this aircraft museum very interesting and worthwhile. The exhibit is very low key and low in price. Many aircraft, ranging from WWI era through WWII.
