We have been to the museum several times before, but this was our first visit to pay our respects to the Veterans of the various armed forces of the US. The museum itself starts upon entrance with a wonderful display of photo's and stories of many Medal of Honor recipients. You then move past the store in to the main hanger where there is a C47 and B17 in all their glory. Sadly you cannot climb in to them but they are very much opened up for easy viewing. There are several other aircraft and helicopters inside with various displays of things such as cockpit simulators, and uniforms through the ages around the edges of the main hanger. Outside there are many transport planes laid out with access to several. On this day Veterans and volunteers opened up most of the planes, and did mini tours through the planes. Most interesting to me was Airforce2, retired in 2011, a plane that transported many living presidents, first ladies and other foreign dignitaries. It was awesome to walk through the plane, imagining so many important people who have travelled on this plane.
Overall an excellent museum, that provides education, some interesting planes that many will not have heard of, and some tales from the Veterans and volunteers that are purely their unique experiences. I would highly recommend you make time to visit soon.
