“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We have lived in the area about 8 years and finally decided to visit this museum. Upon first entering there is a small room which has many artifacts and items related to the military and general aviation. In the hangar, many people volunteer their time to work on planes where we could see what they were working on in addition to a myriad of different types of planes...old and new. The volunteer who showed us around enlightened us with many stories about the planes at this location, as some date back to WWII. There are also a few planes outside...the fighter jet and "Thunder Pig" especially caught our eyes. There is no fee to visit the museum, but after seeing how it helps restore our country's history, we became members. Definitely a neat place to visit. They also offer a few events throughout the year for special--we hope to attend the Aviation Appreciation Day this year!

“A great tour and interesting experience.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The museum was even better than expected. The front of the hangar had a nice little museum dedicated to the military history of the Air Force. The displays, models and artifacts were well done and added to the anticipation of seeing the planes under construction in the hangar. We were warmly greeted by a volunteer who gave us a personal tour and explanation of ongoing projects. We were also able to see planes on the field and actually sat in the pilot's seat of a large cargo plane. For military enthusiasts there is even a research library to find histories of old units. It was a very enjoyable tour and experience.
