We visited the museum and was very impressed. I definitely enjoyed the gift shop. It had a ton of military pins from all branches of the service as well as on the spot personalized dog tags while you wait. The museum was spectacular and we learned a lot of history. You can easily spend a couple of hours there. Also... More

If you have any love/curiosity of the Air Force and most especially this time period, you will love the information, the films and the displays. Very well done and the people are very informative and helpful.

My wife and I visited the museum so I could find out more about my long deceased father and what he did while a member of the 445BG Squadron703. This bomber group (BG) is noted for one of it's members, Mr. Jimmy Stewart, but any person who served in the Mighty 8th should be considered a hero. The museum has... More

Briefing is at 0530 in the ready room. Or, atleast, that is what you will feel if you visit this excellent informative and well thought out museum dedicated to the men and women that served in the eighth airforce in world war 11. You dont have to be a history buff or aviator to enjoy.

VERY nice museum. A great tribute to the men and machines that flew over Europe in WW II. I spent three hours there and probably needed another hour to look at all the memorials that are outside. Denny Stevensville, Mi.

My interest was primarily in the WWII participation of the 8th Although the museum covers more than that. The context of the 8th within WWII is explained very nicely. The videos are well done, and there are interactive displays.

Nice indoor museum showing some of the more famous raids, and various exhibits try to give you a feel for what it was like to be in a bomber crew in WW2, along with static displays of several warbirds. The outside garden is a beautiful tribute to the crews, many of whom did not return. School age children may not... More

My son used to love to visit this place while I was homeschooling him and while he was in private school. It's huge, lots to learn, very detailed, and the exhibits are well-kept.

My companion has been wanting to come here, but as I am not a history buff I relunctantly agreed. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by how interesting and awesome this museum is. Lot of different types of exhibits, presentations, and displays, inside and out. We definitely did not allow enough time to be able to soak everything in.... More
