Most of the planes are indoors so it is a relief from the desert heat. The planes are all in flyable condition and well maintained. The guides are eager to help you and will regale you with war stories. Most importantly it is not so big that it takes way toooo long for the people in your group who don't... More

The volunteers at the museum provided lots of info. We had a wonderful time. My son had lots of fun on the flight simulator and I especially enjoyed the exhibits on the Tuskeegee Airmen.

Sitting in fully restored airplanes and helicopters really gives you sense of the courage and commitment of the heroes with great videos and dioramas to put it all in perspective. The volunteers are anxious to visit with you and give you real insight and respect.

I had no idea there was such a large and active war birds establishment here. It is well run,with retired military personnel offering rare insights and stories thought the museum. It is indeed rare to be able to get so up close ( you can touch!) to these awesome aircraft. Well worth it!

This is a terrific place to visit and you can easily pass 2/3 hours here. Every age group will find something to interest them and there are numerous opportunities to board many of the aircraft. The staff, many of whom are Veterans, provide many interesting facts and stories. Not to be missed.

As a history buff, I enjoyed seeing the WW11 planes. There are quite a few and they are well placed, and with informative descriptions
