“Very nice museum”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

This is not a very big museum, and cannot compare with the air force museum in Dayton or the air and space museum in DC, but they have a good collection, and they are steadily expanding. The Tuskegee airmen exhibit and the Korean and Vietnam war exhibits are really good, very nicely set up in realistic settings. Well worth the visit.

“Decent Little Museum”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

Most of the planes that you want to see are kept at the airport about half a mile down the road.
