The museum is pretty small, but a lot of fun. Kids and adults can climb into the old aircrafts. They host some pretty cool events. Hot Dog Thursday's throughout the summer, the air show in September, they even fly Santa in on a helicopter in December. They staff is super friendly and knowledgeable.

A great place to visit and enjoy many wonderfully restored aircraft. You can walk right up to the planes. There are no ropes that keep you back. You can get up close and personal and on the third weekend of most months they have an Open Cockpit to see just what it's like to fly one of these marvelous planes.... More

This is a small collection of 20 to 30 aircraft. While there are some civilian aircraft, most displayed are former military units. Each of the displayed planes has a very good description posted next to it and there are volunteers ready to answer any questions one might have.

Been here many, many times for different reasons. I went both days...but. found it too much commercialism the last time I went. It was neat to see all the big planes and the small ones. Be prepared to wear light clothing as it can get quite hot during the air show. I love the museum, but the air show doesn't... More

I've always been interested in military aviation and am a former military pilot. The grandkids (nine year old boy and seven year old girl) and I went on a hot afternoon. The kids really liked the aircraft displays. I think kids a bit older that have already been reading about military aircraft would have a terrific time. The docents were... More

This is outside on the Tarmac. My husband and son thoroughly enjoyed the planes getting up close and experiencing the real thing. The docents were exceptionally friendly, informative and helpful. It was very hot the day we visited and there was no shade around the planes..so the guys loved it, the wives not as enthusiastic, however we did learn something's... More
