All a/c are in mint condition, no rust buckets. One reviwer stated some rope barriers, during myn visit NO battiers. All a/c are open to walk up to & inspact. Just NO TOUCHING.

All staff/volunteers were helpful in answering all my questions. Admisson is FREE, with donations appreciated. A small gift shop in one corner. One wall iis covered with photos, along with several large & medium models. The museum is one large room, which give the impression of being in a a/c hanger. The museum is located next to the Hendersonville airport. Also displayed are flight manual & two combustion 1930's engines.
