"Off we went . . . into the Wild Blue Yonder!"
Aug 2021
Wow! Huge selection of WWI through present-day aircraft, both inside and outside the museum, all perfectly displayed. Plenty of informative signage to learn about each plane and accompanying paraphernalia. Knowledgable and friendly retired airmen (?) available to answer any question. Large and well-stocked gift shop, too. We really enjoyed our visit!

Aviation history

I'm not a military or aviation fanatic, but I did enjoy walking through the exhibits. There's lots to see indoor if it's too hot to walk through the outdoor exhibit. There's a scavenger hunt to keep young kids interested.

Best air and space museum west of the Smithsonian.
Jun 2021 • Couples
What a find! An incredible collection of aircraft from throughout history, along with memorabilia, artifacts and placards to explain it all.

Spread across two large hangers and outdoors, this place is incredible - and free (other than your tax dollars). Wear comfortable walking shoes for these concrete floors.

A must-see for any air buff.

Airplane Junkie

I am an airplane junkie. I love getting to go to museums that have anything to do space and aerospace. While this pales in comparison to other museums size wise, it is still definitely worth a visit. For me this was a trip down memory lane. The aircraft that are indoors are very well preserved and cared for. While there are some items that have displays explaining what the items are, there are some that are not labeled. There is a very descriptive display for our heroes that served in Vietnam. The museum is free to visit although there are plenty of donation boxes around the museum. The staff do not bug you about contributions. The staff are also very friendly and want to help. Like I said, it is definitely worth a visit if you have any interest in aircaraft.

Excellent Display of Military Aircraft
May 2021
Outstanding display of aviation history in the military services. The aircraft are displayed so that you can observe them, and there are volunteers to answer questions.

I am a retired Coast Guard Officer, and the gift shop had more Coast Guard "stuff" than any Coast Guard Exchange.....and I bought at least one of each item they were selling.

Outstanding Aerospace Museum
Apr 2021 • Family
Today was our first ever visit to this museum and we were absolutely thankful we found it!! The displays of military planes were wonderful and informative. The volunteers were great with some wonderful historical knowledge of facts about the military planes in the museum. The gift shop had a wonderful variety of items to purchase from toy planes to clothing. Highly recommend this place for families and aviation fans, especially when you’re able to enjoy everything at no cost!!!

Knowledgeable Staff, great gift store
Oct 2020
I can't believe this place is free. I would happily pay but am so thankful it is free. My husband LOVES jets/planes, etc. My son also really enjoyed it and I did too. I learned SO much. The staff was so very helpful and I was blown away by their knowledge. They really go above and beyond to make guests understand what they are looking at.

We bought some things from the gift shop, the staff in the shop was so friendly and helpful too.

After we spent an hour or so in the museum we ate outside at a picnic table (I packed lunch) and it was REALLY fun to eat as a family under the wing of jet. If you are even slightly interested in jets/planes you will have a ball here!

F117 Stealth Fighter added to their collection!
Jan 2021
An excellent air museum with a very large and well-maintained collection. They received an F117 in August 2020 and it is being restored on the museum floor in full view of visitors.

Worth a visit
Oct 2020 • Couples
We really enjoyed visiting the museum, it has beautiful displays and aircraft. Admission was free, so that's a plus! You can walk around at you own pace, and the volunteers are nice and full of great information. There is plenty to see outside, and they have picnic tables available. It was very clean, and they are following covid protocols so bring your mask. Google map sends you to the wrong exit FYI, so get the address from somewhere else.
