“Mid America Museum”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This museum is a very cool and interesting place for people of all ages. Anyone who likes cool old cars to helicopters would love this place. The museum has a variety of planes and cars. You can even go into a real FedEx cargo plane! My favorite thing in the museum is the United 232 flight memorial in honor of the plane that crashed just outside the museum location.

Extremely interesting displays covering air and land with a special coverage of the United crash. Many of the displays brought back man memories of previous times. The quality of. Various cars was unbelievable especially the Cadillac limo and the ambulance . The Huey chopper brought back Vietnam memories to one of our party.
Overall great way to spend a few hours good value for money.

“Can't believe 8 of these engines on one plane”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

It is hard to believe that an airplane could be large enough that eight of these engines would fit on the wings.
