“See a B52 bomber”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

A highlight is the B52 bomber where you can see the cockpit as well. The museum also has an intersting collection of fighter planes, helicopters, wreakage from Japanese war planes andground vehicles. We spend and enjoyable couple of hours there. The admission price is reasonable for the experience.

“Impressive B-52! Great place to learn, & honor our fallen heroes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The B-52 is really impressive inside the hanger. But the museum's videos, photos, and summaries describing the recovered aviation equipment, uniforms, and artifacts is what draws you into the museum to learn & honor our aviation heroes. Really well done.

“Very interesting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Was a great place to step put of the heat and back on time. The b52 was the real highlight but there were many more good displays. Better than most museums as you can really get in close and get a feel of what it was like to have been flying these planes. If you have an interest in big engines you will like this place.
