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.

Have been to many aircraft museums so had to stop here after a day at the canyon. Nice selection of aircraft in a smallish building that can be seen in a short period of time. Neat project planes and parts out back too. I was the only person there during my visit and had the whole place to myself. Took... More

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.
