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.

We saw this online and thought it would be a good place to go since my husband served 23 yrs in A.F. It was not what we expected. It was sparse BUT the guide was very kind and knew his job.Most of the planes were Navy but that didn't matter.We did buy 2 books on F4's. They need to make... More

This interesting museum is well laid-out and packed with information and preserved military aircraft from WWII through the present. The volunteer, who guided us through the various aircraft, was well-informed and enthusiastic though perhaps a bit too detailed. We did not feel that we had the opportunity to explore the exhibits at our own pace and spend time at the... More

My 8 year old son and I really enjoyed this museum. It is right by the Elmira/Corning airport. The aircraft are from WW II and later but some of the simulators are older. This museum has a B727 simulator and others. My son enjoyed flying on the MS Flight Simulator set up they have. The best part of the museum... More

There is a nice collection of aircraft and memorabilia from WWII and beyond. It allows you to get up close and personal with the aircraft although I would have liked to been able to actually see inside more of the cockpits. It was, for our visit at least, not self-guided. i.e. you have a tour guide who moves you to... More

Reminders of the realities of war must be visited and re-visited so that as a country we endeavor to prevent it whenever possible. Young minds need to learn this, and older minds, like mine, need to remember the monumental costs of countries not getting along. Visiting this museum is also a good way to honor those who gave so much... More
