We visited this museum on a beautiful sunny day where the planes are displayed well. There is a plethora of planes from every era and, if you like to look at planes, this is your place. However, if you are looking for more, this might be a disappointment.
A.) In many cases, there was no explanation for what you were looking at. There were lots of pictures of Tuskegee Airmen with absolutely no explantation of who they were and why they were important to history. In another instance, there was a huge wooden diorama of the Burma Road but little information about what it was and why it was important.
B.) in other cases what information there was was so far away from where you had to stand that you couldn't read it. My eyes aren't good enough to read a typewritten page 5' away. There was a neat periscope set-up for WWI trench warfare for you to look through. But the movie you could see through the periscope was too far small to really see and the sound was so low that I couldn't hear it. Great idea but poor follow-through. In another instance, there are some pictures in a case with some information but not only was the type small but there was no light on it in a dark case.
Looking at planes is not enough. Looking at pictures is not enough, please tell me why this matters. Why is it so important that it is included in the museum.
They do have a marvelous computer simulation of two dog-fights with background narration in one and the actual participants speaking in the other. Best part of the museum.
I understand that they have a new curator and I hope that he improves this museum. It has the makings for a good museum but attention to detail and explanations about why everything in the museum matters are both lacking.
