Hard place to find but once find- a must for plane enthusiasts but interesting for all.

see a number of used WWII planes - some now still in action. Get a tour from the knowledgeable volunteers there. Other interesting things re WWII too.

Loved my visit to the museum. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge. The exhibition is expansive. I would definitely recommend a visit here.

The day we were there they had about 10 aircraft on display outside and 5 in the maintenance hanger. I think their goal here is to have all the planes operational so not as many on static display as most places. Probably the plane highlight is a c46 commando that you can enter and walk around. They also had an... More

This is a wonderful, large, museum with a great selection of vintage planes, artifacts, photos etc. The docents are knowledgeable and unobtrusive. My grandchildren loved climbing in a few of the planes on the tarmac and playing with the controls. It is an entertaining and educational place. Would re-visit.

There aren't many place one can go these days to see WWII era aircraft in flying shape. To see and hear these great craft will certainly give anyone who wasn't around during the war a much better understanding and appreciation for the bravery and fortitude of the men and women who flew, flew in and maintained these beasts. Beyond the... More

I visited the museum with my son who is in the Air Force. We really enjoyed the tour of the museum and the airplanes that have been restored or are in the process . They have several planes that are still flying and you can pay to get a ride. I have added a ride in the P-51 Mustang to... More

I am a history buff, and stopped here and took a guided tour around the planes. Had a wonderful time, these guys do some fanstatic work keeping these old WWII planes operational. It's a great place to spend a few hours and learn something.

I was just riding by, then a small sign of the road "air museum" caught my attention! For 10 dollars donation it really deserves a stop, specially if you are a aviation addict.

Nice place to visit if you are a vintage WW2 aircraft enthusiast. Not a large place but an absolutely dedicated guide will walk you through the famous war aircraft of the era. Other than the US built, a few british, Japase and Russian aircraft are on display as well. Interesting fact is where they restore these machines to the former... More
