They have some really nice planes in this museum. The piece of the space shuttle was an added benefit. A good place to visit.

The full spectrum of aircraft in place. The feel and presence of innovation and history is overwhelming. At every turn it a pleasure to view the wonderful displays and static images that are offered.
