This air museum has a large collection of aircraft, including some that are interactive (that is, they let the kids go inside). Very reasonable admission - well worth a couple of hours.

This is the place to take you kids and grandkids so that they can see upclose and personal all the planes and motoriized vehicles they have seen in the movies. The Pearl Harbor montage and model is worth the effort alone. The docents are mostly vets with first hand knowledge of the aircraft and vehicles. Some of the stories they... More

This museum prides itself on visitors' ability to get up and close to the exhibits, you can walk right up to, around and even under the aircraft housed there. For anybody who is an air enthusiast, or a WW2 buff, this is a great place to visit. What made it even more special for me was talking to the volunteers.... More

The docents are fantastic! They give you an excellent perspective on the aircraft and the people who flew them. We could have spent a couple of days in the museum and not seen or heard it all.

The air museum was a very nice place, with a good collection and equally interesting multimedia display. The outside planes were also nice to walk around.

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.
