History of the 8th Air Force on Barksdale Airforce Base. Nice museum and well run. Worth the trip to see

The museum is right in Barksdale AFB at the entrance so you have to leave your driver's license with the guard at the gate. The museum building is small and worth a brief walk through. The aircraft are outside with information plaques. The notable aircraft on display are: SR-71, B-17, B-27, B-29, B-52D, B-52G, and a Vulcan. The planes are in good condition and worth taking an hour or so to view.

This is a museum of the Cold War and very educational. Thank God, our armed forces were able to outlast the commies. This is how we did it. Go there, learn and teach your kids.

We had a tour. The guide was AMAZING. He was so helpful to the kids and went out of his way to share. Above and beyond!

A small museum, but free and well worth a look. Brought so many memories of my father's days in the 8th Air Force.
