I really enjoyed this place, and found it very educational. The displays are good, both inside and out. The outside planes were showing some signs of weathering, but it did not detract from the experience. This is good for aviation buffs and others alike.

Lots of history in this place. However for the admission price, they need a facelift and some new planes outside. I enjoyed learning more about Wichita Aviation. Clean bathrooms.
