I've been to a few, this place is fantastic. Outside, beautiful landscapes, beautiful memorials, some good modern aircraft well labelled. Inside, great welcome, superb decor, good little shop. Volunteers, the usual veterans, really knowledgable, helpful, interesting. The aircraft - gorgeous, many flight-worthy, and the stuff out on the apron has the active airport as a backdrop. Do the outside first... More

This was an absolute goldmine of a find! The passion by the volunteers to talk about not only the museum but also the history of the planes that are there and the stories they have of their own experiences is priceless. Whether you are American, Australian, European, New Zealander there is something for everyone. What you can't see is the... More

It also includes a library where you can experience the simulation of flying an aircraft, publications from the 1930 to the present. They have actual newspaper clippings of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and WWII Invasion. The staff... More

Beautiful facilities, magnificent planes well maintained, even Air Shows! The 5 acre site is worth the modest price of Admission...young children will be able to walk under, around and through many of them. Inspirational!

Change of pace and they have some unique aircraft and helicopters. One interesting item was that we were able to climb into a WW2 bomber cockpit. They had planes inside and outside on display as well. Some Vietnam era choppers were there as well. They had video presentations in some of the rooms and plenty to keep you interested. The... More
