Many interesting and informative exhibits. My dad donated several of his items of memorabilia before he passed. A good place for students to learn about history of the Air Force.

Wonderful tribute to the service members of the Might Eighth Air Force. Beautiful museum with magnificent displays of aircraft rarely seen, including the "City of Savannah" B-17 Bomber. Well worth the detour when traveling on I-95 either North or South through Georgia/North Carolina. 8/19/17. CM

Displays were informative and professional. Self-guided tour was sequential and thorough. The half-dozen movies/documentaries were informative...More

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.
