We spent a couple of hours here today, mostly walking outside looking at the planes and listening to the cell phone tour guide. The inside exhibits are just OK, although the 911 timeline and podium are interesting. I found the planes outside very interesting. The museum is free. You do need to have an ID to leave at the gate... More

This is a great museum at Barksdale AFB. There is some informative information and displays inside, and a small gift shop. My favorite part was the static displays of the planes outside. They have a good number of older fighters and bombers. Be prepared to leave your drivers license at the guard gate.

We visited the museum while on vacation in Shreveport. It's so fun to find unexpected treasures, like the very podium used by President Bush on 9/11 in the indoor area, to the actual aircraft lined along the street outside. I learned a lot and my husband, retired Air Force Reserves, thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits.

This was a very interesting outing; we have two boys and they absolutely loved it! The actual museum was closed due to a power outage but I'm sure they just wanted to look at the planes anyway :-)

The 8th Air Force Museum located on Barksdale Airforce Base is now known as the Global Air Power Museum. Getting in is a bit tricky as you have to go thru the north security gate. I had to give up my driver licences, and it took about 5 minutes for them to check me out and pass me thru while... More

The items that President Bush used during his speech during 9-11 are on display here. Also the outside aviation exhibits are along a walkway that is pedestrian friendly on the side of the museum.
