Visiting from another country its interesting to see another country's military flight history. The staff are friendly and there is plenty to see. If you are going past on HW2 I suggest you pop in for a bit and take it in.

This is the best Aviation Museum I have ever been too so far. Here you can go inside the plane and experience them. Bonus: if you go on Saturdays you will see the volunteers fix/remodel the plane.

My husband enjoys the war stories and all the airplanes. This is our second visit here and will probably come back again to see the planned improvements when they are completed. This is a great museum for a small town.
