It is a wonderful way to spend the day when in the area. There is a $15.00 parking charge but well worth it for the free admission price to the museum. Definitely take the guided tour. Takes about an hour and half. So much information with personal insight. Our guide Joe Breen was a former pilot with wonderful facts and great personal experience. There are over 150 planes and more to see. Really enjoyed seeing the space shuttle Discovery. The only place to eat there is MacDonalds. Not my favorite eating place. Chicken sandwich was horrible. During the week as not crowded at all.
