The Wings of Eagles Discovery center is amazing. It has a variety of planes to look at. It is also used for many events. There have been school events, and party galas here.

The museum was not as good as I had hoped it would be. The planes on exhibit were good but there were not a lot of them.

Thought this was a great little museum. The displays outline the journey of service men and women through each of the years of engagement. Quotes of the time, newspaper articles, pictures, etc. You will walk away with the stories of the those who gave so much - local hereos, Bessie Coleman, Tuskegee Airmen, and much more.

Particular highlights were the full scale replicas of WW II Japanese kamikaze flying bomb and German He 162. In summary a very worthwhile visit.

Interesting collection of old planes if you are in to that sort of thing. I was there for a reception, and am not sure I would have bothered to make a special trip

I thought my wife would be bored but she spent twice as much time as I did reading all the displays. I was amazed to learn that people actually had weddings and parties in the hangar.

Good airplane museum. We walked around by ourselves and a docent kept coming by and telling us more information. He was excited about being there. He was sorting pictures but kept stopping to share more thoughts with us. It was great!
