Neat museum. Learn about the Atomic bomb missions to Japan at the end of WW2. At one time there were 20000 military personnel in this out of the way base during the war.

This was more than worth the stop. Don’t expect a tour guide and the lady at the desk hardly recognizes you. They could improve that. The airfield, old barracks, hangers, bunkers and more are all there. Where Big Boy got prepped to be dropped on...More

Thanks for making the stop! Glad you enjoyed the tower - it was just recently restored to its World War II condition.

This was in an area that sort of looked like a run down airfield from days gone by. It was so cold and rainy we decided to stop by. Wouldn't have visited on a nice day.

One would not expect something like this in a smaller town, but it has a surprising amount of information, and displays.
