I will say this right out of the door I do not wright reviews so this is saying something. I live 40 miles away from here I have been here before and they have a nice collection to look at both inside and outside.The issues I have is that they are open during this pandemic we are dealing with I am thankful they are open to give us something to do the thing that suck is that you can only look at their bone yard which is only 2 rows of plane no sign telling you about them. The hanger were open you could look in but not walk in. I would have never made the trip and paid full price for to go look at what I got to see. I was their maybe 35 min when a guild sent me to go look at the B17 my daughter and I were walking down the isle a guild came around the corner and yelled what are you doing here you cant be here leave who sent you down here. I was pissed at the way yelled at 1 3 girl. I went up to the front desk and told the woman what had happen and she was like wow I dont t know why he would do that. The bottom line is dont waste your time and money at this place poor service and poor customer care. If you are out their look at Yank air way better place to spend you time.

I love the annual air show they have with so many of the old warbirds flying! The museum is nice too and it’s one of the first things to reopen after COVID-19! They’re currently restoring a B-17 to flight readiness as well as a real piece of history, a Messerschmitt Ff109 E1/7 (Bf 109) that fought in the Battle of France, the Battle of Britain and the Eastern Front! They also have various warbirds from around the world! Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area!

Loved! We’ve gone multiple times between the yearly air show, flying history, and just to take the kids it’s always amazing!

We love Plane museums, and we loved seeing this one! We didn't even have time to see all of the exhibits because we wanted to beat the freeway crush back to our lodging. This is near many dairies so it does NOT smell like aviation fuel. :) There are MANY things to see, and a very nice gift shop, also. Next time we will pack a picnic so we don't waste time going out to eat. Biplanes, props, jets and even the USS Enterprise time-line and jets are covered at this museum. Wonderful! I am sure we will return to see what we have missed.

I've been to a number of aircraft museums across the country, this one ranks up with the best. Great facility and staff. Took my time going through the museum, very laid back. Great collection. Really liked the gift store.
