If you're anywhere near Nebraska don't miss this museum! It's outstanding. Even if you don't know anything about SAC or aircraft, you'll have a great time. There are movies and a fantastic series of flight simulators from which to choose. But be sure to be there at 11am when they give the tour. We were there on a Wednesday and had Bob as our tour guide. He has so many interesting and sometimes amusing stories about the planes, we were mesmerized.. Since you may be there a while, remember, the cafe closes at 2pm. There's easily a full day of fun available to you at this incredible place. There's a large area filled with experiences just for kids, too. And, believe it or not, it's free!

This is an amazing Museum, all the history, and the airplanes, the special display on the Holocust was so touching. Kids would love this museum. It takes awhile to go through so have the time to go through it.

We lived in Lincoln for two years and somehow never visited the SAC Museum. On a recent trip, we made a point to stop here. SAC is a critical piece of Cold War history, and there is a lot of information about the era. The collection of aircraft was fascinating for my husband, who loves military history. The tour is 1:45, but it flew by with all the information the guide had to share. The highlight was seeing the SR-71 Blackbird. They also have a very fun STEM area with interactive exhibits and activities for kids. Lunch from the cafe was very good and not over-priced. Well worth the stop. It is a 501c3 and fully donor-funded.

We visited with a large group; 8 adults and 11 kids (ages 1-10). All of our kids were entertained for about two hours in the various kid spaces. The airplanes were fun to look at but the kids enjoyed the interactive areas much more. Definitely worth a stop especially with kids.

If you LOVE aircraft, or were involved in SAC, then this museum is for you. Even if you just generally enjoy seeing a variety of aircraft this is a neat place to stop - the B-17 is always neat to see. However, I think it was entirely too expensive for the time we spent there during our recent visit. We stopped and viewed every plane, looked at all the displays, and even walked to some of the outdoor exhibits and we were there less than 90 minutes. The cafe is terrible - don't even think about eating there unless you are absolutely starving. Their website says "Enjoy a well cooked meal at our very own café" but the closest anything came to being "cooked" were the hot dogs spinning on the roller machine. Overall, there are neat things to see, but it is unlikely I would ever go back.
