I spent three hours w Curt and Bill at the museum oct 30 2014. The exhibits were good (curated by Curt). But the best were their comments on the history and the parts they personally played in the Cold war. I commend the Air Force for supporting this museum and the history and stories represented there.

I like to be able to walk among the different airplanes that are on static display outside. I like being able to take friends to the center for them to see the airplanes on display. Inside the building I find the display they have regarding the missile sights in the area is good. There are other displays in the building... More

The center and air park are on the Air Force Base. The gate guard didn't seem to have any idea what I was asking about, even though it turned out to be about 100 feet away from his post. Once he figured that out, he told us we needed a permit, so we were directed to an office just outside... More

This is a very compact museum with a small collection of historical aircraft outside but a high quality museum inside as well. I was assigned to Malmstrom AFB many moons ago and it was amazing to see some of the old equipment that I use to work with. There was also a fascinating video presentation that described the basic process... More

If you haven't been here, you are shortchanging yourself. The staff loves to tell stories, the displays are great, and all secrets are revealed! Wander through the outdoor displays, too - they are world class! I revisit often and always learn something new.

My kids loved this place and to tell you the truth so did I! I even enjoyed it more than the Smithsonian Air & Space museum in D.C. We loved all the planes and Air Force history.

Been wanting to visit here for the last year but everythime we wanted to go the museum was closed. This is a nuclear missle base right inside the main gate. You need to have a security check so bring a drivers license, The security check takes about 15 minutes. After you are cleared you have to walk to the museum... More

I loved seeing the layout of the base and understanding more of the history of what has gone on there in the past.

It's fun to see a few short times as an adult. Our young children love to go and walk under and around the outdoor exhibits though.

My 2 year old loves planes so we decided to visit. You have to show ID and give your ss# for a background check which takes a few minutes. Then you walk to a small park with a few planes, a helicopter and a missal. My sons enjoyed looking at the planes and walking under them. However, when we went... More
