Loved seeing the sparkling aircraft that they have and especially the project to rebuild the Tin Goose. Plan to return to see the aircraft when it is completed.

I visited this new museum in March. A new facility that is continuing to grow. Half of the museum consists of displays related to the history of aviation that are of interest to both adults and children. The other half of the museum is a hanger containing World War II vehicles, a B-25 bomber, a Canadian training plane and a Ford Tri-motor that is in the process of being restored. A neat old time style diner is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The museum is a fun place to visit.
