What a wonderful learning experience for all young people to see in order to understand how and why we live in this free country! Many of these aircraft helped win our freedom and seeing them helps youngsters to see things they don't teach in schools any longer.

Looking at all the old planes was interesting. It didn't take us very long about 30 minutes. It was a welcoming break from the heat.

The admission price to view the restored aircraft was well worth it. Great value. The old world war II vintage aircraft are pristine and most of them fly. It was interesting to look at an old DC3 being restored along with other aircraft. Each aircraft had a sign with history and provided an educational tour.

Almost totally restored post Hurricane Ike this museum(where you can actually rent flights in historical planes) is a great place to go and explore on a hot day. Lots of History of both the island and the interesting mix of aircraft in the hanger!

Off the beaten track this museum is worth looking into. Located across from Schlitterbaun water park. This non profit collection of WWII planes and military goods is a nice way to spend time in the heat of the day. Not a huge all day event but was worth my time

If you love planes then this is the place to go. They have a good selection of planes to view. Just be aware that it is not an interactive museum and is best for mature viewers who are interested in historical flights.

WW2 aviation on display. Most of which currently fly. You know by the drip pans under the engines. A great family experience. Kids get to see the real thing!
