Want to do something different? Go here. You'll see all kinds of airplanes and lots of historical memorabilia that's appealing to both youngsters and oldsters. Exhibits are very informative and well done.

A few years ago, the museum got a new executive director. He has done a tremendous job with expanding activities, exhibits, and generally making the museum nicer & nicer over time. Each visit I find something new and I have joined with a family membership to support their efforts. While the museum is nothing fancy by many standards, it is very much heading in the right direction. I look forward to seeing where it is taken over time.

My kids were disappointed that you can't actually climb aboard the planes, but were satisfied with the ambulance and other trucks available for hands-on exploration. The Wright Brother's flight simulator was really cool.

The good - the aircraft were in good condition and the facility is nice and clean. There was at least one aircraft that I have never seen before. Having been a pilot I always like to see unusual aircraft on display. The F104 was a treat. Also, many of the airplanes were not roped off and you could walk right up and see them in detail. The B1 was impressive.

The not so good - although the collection represented a nice display, there is not a lot to look at for the $11 adult admission. I have been to many aircraft museums and at some of them you can see hundreds of aircraft for less than what you pay for here.

Overall an adequate yet somewhat expensive place to go with the family.

Visited this museum yesterday - it is well worth an hour of your time. There is a large variety of planes including a B-1 bomber and other Air Force planes. It was a surprise to see an X-Wing fighter from the Star Wars movies with R2D2 as a pilot.

Take the time to watch the short movie staring Harrison Ford - great scenery.
