Unfortunately, Dell Smith, the owner of this facility has not been good to his creditors. The whole endeavor is, so to speak, up in the air………...

i read in the paper that this museum is having financial difficulties, so go soon to see it before they sell anymore of their beautiful planes. It is a great place and takes hours to go through and see the 3Dmovie. very interesting. Food in The restaurants is not so good. So much history right here and lovely grounds.

There is so much to see for everyone. It is well worth the money to also see the space side.It has wonderful hands on exhibits for kids and of course the water park. I didn't think I'd be too interested in the space side,but I truly enjoyed it and learned a lot. My husband was in awe of theSR71.Then of... More

The museum is mainly known for the spruce goose but it has so many other significant aircraft, including a sr71 and flyable c3 and b17, both available to walk through. The volunteer guides are a wealth of knowledge and more than happy to talk about the exhibits (a lot are ex pilots) and really made our visit. Well worth paying... More

We are on a road trip from Vermont and my husband wanted to visit here. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We wanted to spend more time but it was raining and we could walk around outside. We also didn't make enough time for the movie. Hope to come back this way again.

Although I live less than two hours away, and I am a big fan of planes and rockets, I have never before been to this museum. Until this past weekend, that is. Our family made the visit and it was a great experience. The place is full of amazing examples of airplanes and space stuff. How can you beat the... More

This is our second trip to the museum and it was sort of a "did we really see what we saw the first time" kind of experience. For even casual aviation geeks this is a must-see place. They have one of the four intact SR-71s! Absolutely worth the trip.

Very nice. This complex consists of 4 buildings; a water park, flight museum with Spruce Goose, an Imax theater and Space museum. We spent several hours there in the flight museum and the space museum and could have spent all day. The exhibits are well presented with lots of history, plenty of docents and loads of pristine air craft and... More

Be sure and see one of the Imax movies that come with the tour. And use the free volunteer tour guides. The most impressive is the "Spruce Goose" plane. All warm and indoors. And now they have a water slide park for the kids. Enjoy

As an aspiring AirWoman, this was a pretty fascinating experience for me. The collection is beautiful, especially their prized Spruce Goose. It was cool to learn about Paul Newman's color blindness and other random facts. I enjoyed the Lewis and Clark movie too.
