I love this place. All the history and the hand on exhibits makes this place very special. No admission fee but they do ask for a donation. I feel 5 dollars a person is the perfect amount.

We attended the Lancaster run-up and were very impressed. The museum is interactive and pretty much without restriction in that you could wander just about anywhere. There are some amazing displays of war-time planes. A must-visit.
