This is one of the best museums for armament and airplanes that I've seen in awhile. With a small donation you can enjoy as much about the Armament classes of the Air Force Navy Army and Marines. A must do on the herbal Coast!

If you like Military Memorabilia than you will love this very well appointed Museum. The displays are easy to see and read and cover a wide range of topics.

They have an SR71 Blackbird, Many Viet Nam, Korean war planes and ordinance. Plenty of outside static displays. The indoor museum was closed when we went by. Even with it closed we had plenty to look at.

We enjoyed our visit to the museum. The free admission is a bonus! The displays inside the building provide a lot of information. The planes and helicopters outside were fun to look at up close!

So many planes. If you enjoy looking at aircraft up close, this is one of the best places you can go to. Best part is that it's free.
