There is always something new going on at this place and children can get a chance to get up close with old aircraft and jets. Plus they have classes for kids to learn more during a class field trip.

This museum is jammed into to small a space. Their displays are ok and don't really flow well. For what was there I thought the price ($12) was high. Some signage about a future expansion Two really helpful volunteers. That made it nicer.

There are exhibits designed specifically for kids; so if your grandsons have any interest in airplanes (especially those flown during wartime), they should enjoy touring this museum.
