This place is huge. We walked for miles around these aircraft. So interesting to see the actual aircraft that was used in the past. To stand by the plane, you feel like an ant! If only we could have gone inside one. Some of them...More

We took our sons ages 5, 7, and 12. The museum is very large, but was a little disappointed in the lack of hands on exhibits. It was cool to see such large planes up close, but there were only a few that you could...More

We arrived just in time to take the tour and so glad we did. The tour guide, a former pilot, certainly knew his planes. He gave a brief description of each plane detailing it's features and drawbacks. While we were there they were setting up...More

From the minute you walk into the lobby of the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum near Ashland, Nebraska, you are awestruck by the sight of the massive Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird that thoroughly dominates the glass atrium. It is the greatest and fastest airplane ever...More

Cool place to see some old aircrafts for $13. Easy to spend 1-2 hours in this massive airplane warehouse. Friendly staff and lots of parking. The B-32 was ginourmous, unbelievable that it took flight 70 years ago. Great spot of history or aviation buffs.

Probably the only way is a taxi but may be cheaper to rent a car. It is just off I -80 so very easy to get to. But is several miles from Onaha depending where you are in the city.

Unfortunately, unless you get a cab, there is no public bus route that comes to the Museum.
