“It's a discovery center”

Wings Of Eagles Discovery Center
Attraction details
Reviewed June 15, 2016

While it is true that many airplane museums have more aircraft, this is a discovery (educational) center not a museum. I learned things here.

It was easy to spend two hours here, about half of it looking at the timeline on the back wall depicting important events in aviation through the years.

A restaurant inside offers a variety of food including several kinds of tasty soup, all at reasonable prices. It appeared that locals come here for lunch.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Karen.

Note: The discovery center has very short hours, only from 11 to 3, Tuesday through Saturday. I wish it were open longer as I had to return the following day to see it all.

Look for it on the west side of the airport, with airplanes parked around it. (They can be viewed even when the building is closed.)

It was a lot of fun being able to climb in some of the aircrafts and see them up close. Very informational. I was surprised to see how much they had to look at and go through. Good stop if you have a couple hours to spend.

A comfortable clean area to check out many different airplanes and things to do with aeronautics. Check their website for special events throughout the year.

The Wings of Eagles Discovery center is amazing. It has a variety of planes to look at. It is also used for many events. There have been school events, and party galas here.
