We visited on a Saturday when they offered the hamburger cookout. The food was great, but the tour of the hangers was fascinating. There were old vintage planes and also military items. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will take our grandsons on our next tour.

I am an airport/airplane geek...and a private pilot. This is a great display of many different aircraft. Those in hangar displays are operational. Great selection of military paraphernalia. Worth every cent of the $10 admission fee...and we gave an extra donation.

A great little museum for all your pilot friends. Clean and very organized! Our pilots in the family spent hours in the museum while the ladies shopped!

And visited the Air Museum. Nice museum, lots of old aircraft on display and in varying stages of restoration. Also a lot of military vehicles.

This is an ok static display of vintage aircraft. It's nothing special to those who have been to any of the big aviation museums but still a great place to visit, especially with kids.

A small group of us (5) went to the AR Air Museum and for the $9 Senior admission ($10 Adult, $5 child) fee we got a super tour. Our guide Mr. Smith, was very knowledgeable, and interesting. We thought we would only be there for about an hour but ended up staying and listening to him for almost 2 hours.... More

I have taken the grand kids here several times. They love airplanes and one of them is a WWII expert..at the age of 10. There are quite a few planes here and then a building with medals, clothing, etc. Once we were there on a Saturday and it was Airplane Museum Day. They had free hot dogs and burgers. Nice... More
