My husband and I went and were really surprised at all of the planes in the building. A gem in hiding, well worth the trip to visit.

If you are a WW2 buff this is a good place. The planes are in pristine shape and all can fly if needed. Not for small children, a lot walking and reading.

Great place for a few bucks and an hour of time this is a neat spot. Self guided tour of restored aircraft, primarily of WWII vintage.
