Really interesting museum housed in an old train depot. Very clean and larger than it looks from the outside. The most interesting part is the Ezekiel Airship building. There is an exact replica of the reportedly first airplane to actually fly. Conceived, designed, and built...More

Found this museum to be friendly, interesting and informative. I thoroughly enjoy museums and place this one high on my list. There was a guide who helped us through the exhibits who provided information and answered questions. Very friendly.
