I don't know if I can say anything about this Museum that hasn't already been said. We had a great time. Spent 4 hours in there and it went so fast. I have never considered myself someone who was really all that interested in history but I have to say I will definitely go back again.We took lots of pictures. This is a great place to go for singles, couples, kids or groups and it's all free! They do have donation boxes which we gladly deposited cash. I believe it actually takes debit or cards at some too if I remember right. Please donate, I would have paid at least $20 bucks a ticket to get in, it's really worth more.....

So many choices of things to do. Museum is free to walk around two floors, hanger one, and take the trolley ride of 60 other planes.

Extra fees for the IMAX shows and the simulators. Depending on how much you want to spend and how much time you have it is worth spending the extra dollars.

The signature show is the magic of flying narrated by Tom Selleck. Made especially for the museum and highlighting flight and the Blue Angels. If you can only do one thing this is a good choice.

If you are planning to visit the museum of 6+ hours then you can schedule an IMAX show walk around then do the trolley then another IMAX then walk around.

The trolley and IMAX shows are all 45 minutes each. If you purchase combo of IMAX and/or have military ID you get a small discount.

The cafe is also worth a stop.

Our family watched the Imax show "Straight Up Helicopters in Action". Excellent for all ages! I had no idea the many functions helicopters perform across the globe. Amazing! Going though the museum w/ a tour guide is a better experience as you get to hear unusual stories about the planes, etc. Our guide wore a small microphone so it was easy to hear. Bathrooms are clean.

Did all but one of the "Breakfast and a Movie" events. Loved the IMAX presentations and the exhibits. I look forward to going back.
