My very first experieince. Museum is a wealth of information on the airline industry and airplanes used during this war. Seeing the re-enactors was an amazing experience. The Sherman Tank stole the show during the skirmishes presented. Quite a "living" history lesson.

Ive loved the WWII airshow for as long as they have had it, seems like every year the price goes up and every year there is less to look at. I dont think its worth the cost of admission anymore

Finally made it to the WWII Weekend. It did not disappoint. Lots of re-enactors and a lot of activities going on. The airshow was great. There was even a pair of A-10 Warthogs that made a surprise visit. Seeing the only flying B-29 was a treat. Parking was off site, but transportation was provided. No big deal. For those complaining... More

Well worth going out of your way to visit this air museum. A lot of cool looking and rare airplanes. Some almost one of a kind left in existence. The history behind these aircraft is very interesting and relayed by the staff in great detail. I was just going to stop and take some photos but ended up spending a... More

Went with 15 year old daughter and 13 year old son and wife. They were preparing for their WWII show, so many of the planes were out on the runway, not in the hangar where I guess they normally are. We were given a tour guide who lead us through everything and explained the various craft and how it came... More

If you enjoy history or vintage aircraft this museum is a must see. The museum has a ton of aircraft in varying states of restoration. They have a DC3, B25, P61, and so much more that I won't bother typing them, just look at their website. WW II weekend is the premier event and is just tremendous. Aircraft, vehicles, and... More

There is a lot of history and a lot of aircraft at this museum, Don't miss the WWII Weekend on the first weekend in June. There are a lot of re-en-actors, rides in vintage war-birds and the homefront area that represents life during the war years.

Attended the museum on 2/28/16 (2nd time) as well as the 2015 WWII Weekend & can't say enough good things about the experience. Joe, our guide @ museum visit was knowledgeable & informative; especially interesting was the submarine/airplane combo awaiting restoration. Another different aircraft was the "U" shaped wing on an experimental plane whose propellar "pushed" the plane instead of... More

We ended up getting to this museum 45 minutes before closing, and even though we still had to pay full price, we got a private tour, which was well worth more than the price, and was most interesting and enjoyable! Our guide was very personable and had a good sense of humor! He also told us about what we were... More

when one thinks of Reading, PA one does not imagine that there will be a gem hiding there. But for those like myself who enjoy history, there is the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum which is on the property of the Reading Airport. The collection of vintage aircraft is very impressive for a small community and a volunteer organization. Especially notable is... More
