“Must see for aviation fans”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

This is a great indoor/outdoor museum for aviation buffs. It is easy to get to, has plenty of parking, and has a decent cafe. The docents are knowledgable and eager to answer questions.

“Great Experience!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

The Air Museum has lots of different planes to see and a few that you can actually go into. For an additional $5, you can go inside the B-17 in the WWII hangar and get a guided tour. It was really cool to get to see inside this amazing plane (also called the Flying Fortress)...pretty impressive! There are a couple of others, though, that don't require an additional fee. Upstairs, there are flight simulators on computers that are fun to use. There's someone there to help you figure out the gears and once you have an idea of what you're doing, you can just play on it for awhile. As an adult, I had fun with it and there were also children that were having a great time as well, so it's a fun experience for all ages! Don't miss these great pieces of history!

“A Must See By All Ages - Especially those 40 and Younger”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

This is more than just a museum. It is a superb history lesson which holds one's interest throughout. Plan for at least four hours and even at that you will not have time to lolly gaggle.
