Thought this was a great little museum. The displays outline the journey of service men and women through each of the years of engagement. Quotes of the time, newspaper articles, pictures, etc. You will walk away with the stories of the those who gave so much - local hereos, Bessie Coleman, Tuskegee Airmen, and much more. Welcoming staff with available... More

Spent several hours at the museum. They have a very nice collection of aircraft spanning from WW II to present. Particular highlights were the full scale replicas of WW II Japanese kamikaze flying bomb and German He 162. In summary a very worthwhile visit. It can be done "quickly" in 90 minutes if short of time or over 3 -... More

Interesting collection of old planes if you are in to that sort of thing. I was there for a reception, and am not sure I would have bothered to make a special trip

I thought my wife would be bored but she spent twice as much time as I did reading all the displays. I was amazed to learn that people actually had weddings and parties in the hangar.

Good airplane museum. We walked around by ourselves and a docent kept coming by and telling us more information. He was excited about being there. He was sorting pictures but kept stopping to share more thoughts with us. It was great!

If you go here and just look at the exhibits, you could probably be in and out in a half an hour. Once you start talking to the docents, it can be hard to escape! We got to fly the 727 simulator and climb up inside the Avenger aircraft. The docent also showed us many videos about the history of... More

We visited on 15th or 16th April 2014 and had an excellent tour by Richard Green who was extremely knowledgable and informative. The receptionist was a bit unfriendly but the range of planes is good and the admission price is relatively reasonable.

Though it is not a big place and they are still working on a few displays, this was a great place. I took a child with special needs there as a special trip. We were met by an older volunteer and a younger boy by the name of John-Michael (wish I had remember the gentleman's name). He was very patient... More

This museum may not look like much size-wise, but has much to offer anyone interested in warplanes. They have a lot of very interesting specimens. Seeing them up close gives you an understanding of these aircraft that you'd never fully get from just looking at a book or website.
