My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Air Force Armament Museum and the planes outside. It is well worth a couple of hours to see the pieces of history. I loved seeing the B52 Bomber!

Had a great visit. Very informative. Displays were were well documented and very creative and diverse from WWI to modern day era. Incredible to see the planes up close and the weapons display was phenomenal. A must see for any age.
