The outdoor collection is impressive. The number of trainers from WWII to present is impressive accompanied by legends like the F111 and F4. Even a Canberra bomber which I have not seen anywhere in the US before being a British design. And a Space Shuttle booster tucked in the far corner. Each Air Museum has it unique surprises and this one has its share with a Russian collection including an Antonov 2. Definitely worth a few hours of enjoyment wandering this collection. If you are lucky you will also see active Air Force tankers and drones flying from the neighboring base.

My husband loves airplanes and history. I went along to keep him company, but was pleasantly surprised to enjoy it myself. We spent the first hour exploring the interactive and informative exhibits inside. The volunteers working that day were so friendly and offered some very interesting tidbits about the museum. After enjoying the inside, we decided to take part in the guided tram tour of the outdoor airplanes. Wow! Our tour guide was such a great story teller! We really enjoyed ourselves. This place is a true treasure.

2 Guy's visit the Museum and found it changed for the better. This is a must see. Old Military discount given for those that qualify. This was July and very hot outside and did not visit, but the inside was better and some areas were air conditioned.

Staff was friendly and the walk around inside was well documented with interesting side venues.

Will return during low temperature to see outside. Did see some planes that were in my history in the military.

The best surprise though is this museum sits directly next to an airstrip! We happened to be there for the air force to be flying F-35 fighter jets!! Clear skies and views to watch the modern in action as you toured the historic older airplanes. What a serendipitous moment!

We were looking for a quick activity before dinner and dropped into this museum right at 4:00 (they close at 5). The 2 older gentleman were friendly and sweet, offered us a discount for coming so close to closing but clearly set the expectation for closing time. Over age 11 is considered adult so my teenager and I were 2 adults; my teenager is an avid aviation fan so loved this quick visit. Could see this being an easy, short activity for a family with a younger child who loves planes for sure! Later, another older gentleman comes around at 4:45 outside to remind folks, but he's funny conversational style comes across well.

The museum itself is smaller, but robust with information and things to look at. Each plane outside has a plague explaining it's brief use/history. The exhibits inside are spaced nicely and cover several different elements of aviation. We easily saw everything in the hour but we were moving fast & not too worried about reading every plague/sign. If you are going to do that & chit chat with someone else as you go I would allow for 2 hours.

This is a great trip for the family. We took our two grandsons and grandaughter all under the age of 12. They had a great time walking around to view the many aircraft on display. They were even more interested in the indoor museum which had many hand's on experiences and historical displays. I would reccommend this as a great 1 day family outing. Veterans especially will enjoy this and anyone interested in history. My husband especially liked the Army camp display they had set up.

My husband loves planes, of all sorts. He loved this spot and they have a lot of great planes from different eras. Reasonably priced and very clean. No time limit on seeing everything. They have displays inside and a ton of planes outside.

you can last at minimum 3 hrs watching and never leave the opportunity of learning about history from the guys that are there helping as guides. They share a lot of interesting information and anecdotes. I surely could return for another visit.

Great air museum. Open to the public on part of the Air Force Base. Indoor portion is currently closed but your able to walk through to the outdoor section. Great historical aircraft to see and lots of great plaques to read.

This museum appears to be a largely volunteer affair. You won't find a slick or well-designed museum space, but you will find a slightly bewildering exhibit space that obviously required a lot of time and effort to put together.

The entrance courtyard is very nice with several memorials including those to James Doolittle as well as the K-9 corps. Inside the main hanger is a vast collection of photos along with some memorabilia on display. 90 percent covers WWII with some material on Vietnam, Desert Storm and WWI.

Outside, several planes, mostly modern military aircraft, are parked on a dusty patch of ground. Most impressive among these are a Superfortress and a SR-71 Blackbird. A small tram tour is available for $3 (in addition to the $7 entrance fee) and includes commentary on several of the planes. On weekends, an adjacent P-38 museum is open to the public and contains photographs and memorabilia from each of the squadrons that flew P-38s.

Hard-core aviation buffs will probably love this museum. For the casual visitor, however, this museum doesn't offer enough to make it a destination by itself.
