Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and I learned so much about the Blackbird! Highly recommend joining the complimentary guided tour. Our guide was a pilot who provided fantastic insight, and I got much more out of the visit than I would have if I’d walked around...More

We name this side stop just to see what was in the museum. We were delightfully impressed by the displays and they have something for everyone. You can tour this place in less than an hour.

Thank you for your question. We do not allow guests inside the aircraft, unless there is a special occasion. We have an event coming up on August 10, where you'll be able to see inside some of the airplanes, but not all.
