You need 7 stamps to get a Wilbear Teddy Bear.) Excellent displays about aviation and plaques honoring HoF members. Don't miss the... More

I have to admit it was not my idea to go to this museum. My husband and son, both being mechanical engineers, wanted to go. I decided to tag along at the last minute. I am so happy that I did! This place is a real gem with a wonderful staff-- many of them volunteers! It doesn't matter what your... More

This is part of a bigger must see museum. If you have time it is a good little side trip but not a main attraction the Aircraft in the adjoining museum.

Contained within the USAF Museum, this attraction highlights the aviation achievements of the greatest military and civilian aviators. The area is well laid out with simulators adding to the attraction. Worth looking in on.

The Hall of Fame is housed inside the Air Force Museum. It had some interactive things for the kids to do, such as a mock up of an air traffic control tower. A space suit where you can take pictures. Interesting!

I can't say enough about this museum! As an aviation buff, I loved walking around all the HUGE planes and being awed by it all. Although it's not the real thing, the space shuttle trainer I've very cool. Another favorite is the Red Bull capsule that Felix Baumgartener floated out of from the edge of space. A truly must see...
