Loved the museum. Would have loved to see more planes had they been there. All but a small amount were airworthy. Would love to be able to be inside of them, but not allowed. Great for nostalgia.

This is a must see. It was truly amazing to see the restored aircraft and to also read the history of some of the planes and their crews. There are also some amazing models inside the hangar and gift shop.

Well worth a visit for those interested in aviation. Many great vintage aircraft on display, including a gorgeous Continental Airlines DC-3. Also offer Texan, Stearman and Muscalero rides - check their website or give them a call before visiting if you're interested. Several military veterans and aviation buffs were visiting while we were there - had a nice chat with... More

Although the outside of the building doesn't look like much, inside is a nice museum with many static displays of airplanes and WW II vehicles. Remarkable how much they salvaged and restored after Hurricane Ike. The pilots in our group spent 2-3 hours looking around at the planes in the hangers. Inside the museum entrance, there is a really great... More

Several WW2 and other aircraft on display as well as other artifacts. They offer Bi-plane rides but they could not be bothered at lunch time. Oh well, their loss.

The first time we went, it was closed but no where specified-neither on their website nor on the front door. We managed to visit the next day. My 2 year old who loves air planes enjoyed the whole time. The vintage aircrafts were really a treat but the place is really small and I found the entry fee is little... More

Not a plane person myself, but take your husband there and he won't mind you shopping as much! Good collection of planes and great restoration after the 2008 flood. They are to be commended!
