If you really want your children or grandchildren to understand history, show them this. Love seeing the Lancaster. Can’t wait to see it flight ready in 2024. The museum is small, but if you have a free afternoon, it’s interesting.

Actually being able to climb up into the Flying Fortress of the visiting B-29 is a very rare thing to do. The museum with all the regular planes and historical artifacts is a worthwhile visit too.
