Several exhibits and video presentations, WW2 Pearl Harbor Diorama, friendly and knowledgeable docents. Check out the library first if you go in the afternoon as it closes early.

This is an amazing museum. We got to go through a B-17. It’s very well laid out, is very large, very helpful docents, and even has a nice little restaurant. It also has simulators, so you can test your ability to fly.

We really enjoyed our time at the museum. More to see than one might expect. Very knowledgeable volunteers available to guide or share additional information. Well worth a couple of hours.
