Impressed to see real aircrafts and jets. Also I was surprised knowing about Saudi astronaut that was on discovery mission on 1985.

Before heading to the museum I checked the opening hours (sat 8-12, 16-21). Once arrived the museum was closed. The security staff was VERY rude and agressive....Very bad first impression....!!! I hope I will be more lucky this afternoon.....

It's very well maintained and good collection of aircrafts. However, it needs to be kept open for longer duration on the weekends. Drinking water has to be made available.
