History at his finest. If you want to know some history about the Air Force, then come down and visit this lovely museum. They got different aircrafts on display and you’ll be amazed with all of the artifacts they got on display including WWII stuff.

Enjoyed touring the museum and reading about the history from the area. Good interactive simulator for young people to get involved with and spark their interest. Highly recommend stopping by and spending an hour or two enroute to your destination.

I was the first one in on a Saturday morning and the staff (docents?) were anxious for me to spend my time wisely. I had 1 1/2 hours available and didn't really get to absorb everything. I am fairly well versed in this era's history...More

Anyone remembering or had a family member in WW2 should visit here. It's preserving American History as told by many that were there. We're losding too many of the veterans from that Era and this is a memorial to their heroism!

The majority of our exhibits are indoors. The Mighty Eighth is 90,000 square feet, and you can learn all about the Eighth Air Force walking through the museum.
