Being an aviation lover, I wanted to check this museum out. It's a simple 1 hanger setup with a handful of aircraft on display. If you take your time you can spend an hour there. The cashier/staff will say they'll answer questions but all I...More

This is a nicely done little museum. It is definitely a labor of love, and the attendant on duty the day we visited was extremely knowledgeable. There was an impressive amount of information on some exhibits, then virtually none on others, but boy could you...More

I am sure the museum is hopping every spring for the Air Show - but when the air show is not happening - there is not much going on. You can probably check everything out in less than an hour at this location.

Reading these other reviews, I almost wonder if it is the same museum. Maybe they are transitioning the museum, and things are pretty slow in the winter, but we were disappointed. They have some great aircraft, and I'm impressed that many are flightworthy. I bet...More

This is a really nice small aviation museum. They have some really cool aircraft and a lot of great historical items, many WWII. They have a large collection of scale models, and cases with interesting items. This is certainly worth a visit if you like...More

Been awhile since we have visited the Flight Museum. Every year they sponsor the airshow that we enjoy watching since we live within 2 miles of the Olympia Airport.
