Nice to visit even though I work on the base - the museum is right outside of gate one - there are a variety of planes parked inside of the gate at the museum - kids love it.

This is a very small museum, was glad we stopped to see it though. Plenty of models, jet engines, and photos to look at but the museum seemed dysfunctional in that it didn't tell a story. There were plenty of displays that talked about how things started but they could do a better job of pulling it all together.

My kids loved going here. It's not too big, but they got to take cool pictures and learn a lot of information. And it's free! The gift shop is also reasonably priced.

There isnt a whole lot to see here. However it is free admission so you should definitely check it out. The planes are pretty neat and offer some cool photoops but thats about it.

Grand children enjoyed their visit to the museum, it was a more interesting for them to see the planes but when taking friends from UK we spent a long time visiting the inside museum -worth the trip
