We've visited a few times and this place is a real gem. On one particular visit there were additional planes outside including one that guests could enter and sit in for a bit. This is an excellent way to learn about certain aspects of history, even as an adult. Even if you're not into warplanes, you'd be surprised how your... More

My goodness this place is a gem, it has been a while since I visited but when I came back for the first time I just got so much memories rushed back into my head. Kids loved it and I hope for this place to always remain the same.

I took my 4 year old Grandson to the Warplane Museum on a Sunday afternoon, The variety of planes both commercial and military was amazing. The staff there was fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Interactive displays, freedom to see every plane up close and reasonable entrance fees made the afternoon great for both of us. Great gift and souvenir shop... More

The facility was clean. It was very interesting. They had planes you could sit in to see all the instruments. It had history of the war. They had a cool bunker to walk through.

This is not the largest aviation museum, but it has more flying aircraft than any other I know of. The Beechcraft Expeditor was flying the day I went, and they started one of the engines on the Douglas Dakota. They have one of the two flying Lancasters in the world. A really unique experience

This is a great place to visit - especially for the guys! So many planes to check out - and you can get up nice and close to them! My boys loved it!

I love planes, more commercial than military however this place is still worth visiting if you love planes. The museum houses a variety of military style planes and three of which you can actually sit in the cockpit and experience the feel of the plane. Some flight simulators are connected to computers which you can use to test your flying... More

Only about an hour from the Falls, a great diversion for military history buffs. This is a working museum, most of the planes actually fly. There are people throughout the museum to answer questions, or just tell you some stories.

Museum was interesting. There were planes the kids would have been able to go into, but there seemed to be a lack of volunteers paying attention to the guests walking around. It seemed as though an event had just finished and they were getting ready for the air show the next day. That being said, more hands on interaction would... More
