Wonderful first class museum. 3 huge buildings all air conditioned. Each separated into different age and type aircraft. Could be an all day affair if you tried to see it all in one day. I’ve seen a nicer more extensive collection.

No, they don't have a space shuttle, they aren't the Smithsonian, they are actually far better. For a free museum this is not only large and always expanding but there's so much history and the staff go above and beyond in hospitality.
