The exhibits inside are well done as are the aircraft outside. I visited on a Thursday afternoon and didn't see any other visitors. I was approached by one person offering to be a tour guide but saw no one else during the entire time I was there walking around alone. If you are into air transportation this is a great... More

The displays inside and out are interactive. There is a mock cockpit, planes to explore and lots to read on the facts of involvement in the wars. The gift shop has unique items to thrill young and old. I love the visit even though it was almost 100 degrees outside that day.

My family loved this little gem. My boys are 13 and 11, they learned a lot about planes and missions during wars. We were very lucky to have watched two planes take off, while visiting the old control tower. It is free admission and if you would like to leave a donation, you can. The tour guides are very knowledgeable... More
