For anyone who is interested in planes and the historical progression of military aircrafts this is a great place to visit. They have a large group of planes with their histories for each one.
A free entry fee but they do take donations which is always appreciated

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!!!

This is our 2nd trip here. Last trip was 15 years ago. WOW what a difference time makes. This was cool the first time. The improvements they are making made it tons better. You can walk right up to the planes outside. Going inside you get to read about all of the planes there. One cool thing is the local history there too. We took our grandkids and they had a really fun time. They have a C-130 exhibit where you go into a C-130 fuselage. Sitting in the nylon jump seats brought back memories for me. The volunteers bring their stories there as well. Our last visit I was able to talk to a gentleman who was a bombardier in a B-17 during WWII in Europe. Man did he have some interesting (and sad) stories to tell. The best part of this is that this is all FREE! I could spend 3 or 4 days going thru this and not see everything. This is a definite must see if you are in the area.

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.

Exceeded our expectations. From the moment you drive up and see the planes displayed outdoors, you know this will be a great museum. So much history and so many planes. The volunteers were all so helpful.
I would recommend getting there early if you want to have time to explore. We ended up being there for a few hours ( we saw everything).

First time taking the kiddos and I hadn’t been since I was a kid. We didn’t plan it this way, but realized they were doing an Easter Egg Hunt. There were decal eggs hidden throughout the indoor museum with code words on them. If you found at least ten you got a prize. It was a blast!

The layout of the museum is excellently done and there are a lot of friendly volunteers. I’d definitely like to go back and read the posted signs so I can get more of the history. The planes are pretty cool.

Free to get in! Definitely recommend stopping if you’re passing through.

A pleasant aerospace museum showcasing some vintage planes, most under roof. You get very close to the planes. Because of COVID you can't get into the cockpits of the ones that they normally open cockpits for. This is an average museum and in my opinion falls into the "if you've seen one aerospace museum you've seen them all" category. It's not much different than other typical plane museums. It is on Hill AFB but you don't go on base. The museum is very clean and kept up very nicely. We made a special trip up that way to see it and it really wasn't worth it because it's just another plane museum. Still, if you live nearby, or in the area and want to find a place to kill a few hours with the kids, this will do it for sure.

The Hill Aerospace Museum will surely satisfy the most demanding military aerospace junkie. Plenty of US aircraft on display inside and out including a B-1 Bomber, B-29 Bomber, and an assortment of smaller combat and utility aircraft. The price is free and its right off the interstate. My only criticism would be the lack of many foreign aircraft - we saw just a couple of MiG fighters outside in an area that could not be reached on foot.

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!

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!
