Visited this spot on Veterans Day and I was pleasantly surprised. It's definitely a must visit if you have little ones, plenty of things to keep them busy (at least for a couple of hours). Pros: Inexpensive, clean restrooms, lots of hands on exhibits inside, small video screen that showed space film, boxes of military clothing for kids to play... More

My teenage son has always been interested in history, especially WWII, so I took him by the museum in hopes they might have something related to WWII. Which they did, so he was he happy. Its a small museum but very intereserting and showed a nice history of the airforce, WWI, WWII and aviation history. After enjoying the indoor museum... More

Really nice experience for our family that includes children ages 10-6. Not tons of activities for kids per se (just a few PC based flight simulators) but tons of aircraft and informational displays. Always love to see the amazing SR-71!

We took our son's to this museum, and had a great time. Lots of parking, and lots of planes to look at. We took our time viewing the planes. My husband was able to tell us about each of the planes. Learned a lot from him, however, there are docents there that will tell you about them as well. Great... More

My 14 year old son and I stopped off here on a very rainy day. It was cold and windy so we took refuge inside the museum. But we really wanted to see the planes, so we braved the elements and paid for the 30 minute tram ride. Despite the wind and rain we had a very good time. The... More

I went here with my husband after getting a Groupon. They have some really cool-looking old planes and the tram tour is pretty cool. But, if you don't know much about planes, there's not much appeal. The interior museum is a bit dingy and outdated feeling. I don't think this is a place that I would choose to bring out-of-town... More

It is not pretty but neither is war. Good to see some great planes on display. It was a long time ago I actually was on the grounds but would like to go again someday.

The aviation, space and military history on display is fantastic. They've redone a lot of the exhibits. Walking their flight line givesvyou an up close and personal trip back through military aviation history.

If like military planes and history this a great place to spend 2 - 3 hours. Be sure to check out the SR - 71 blackbird in the main hangar. There are also lots of military planes displayed outside. The museum is right by March Air Force base, which is fairly busy with tankers and cargo planes coming and going.... More

Worth a little drive out to see the planes and the museum as displayed here. It is very well done and we spend half a day meandering through the exhibits and videos and walking around the planes. Way to go March!
