Lot's of history, including actual planes.Not expensive to get into - lots of WWII memorabilia. While we were there, actual renovation work was taking place. An hour is probably enough for most people.

This museum isn't very big it is well kept and the planes look really good. Only 6$ for the entry which was surprising. Great for a rest stop.

What a nice place to stop after being in the car for a while. Lots of parking, RVs can fit no problem. More planes than I expected and a very well rounded collection. We spent a little over an hour here. Bathrooms are clean and the gift shop is just full of cool things to buy! I am glad we... More

Just 20 minutes outside Williams and either on your way to or from the Grand Canyon, its worth the $6 admission. Not many planes but well looked after

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
