I really enjoyed the visit to this museum. The first thing I liked was that they specifically said it was OK to take photographs, which not all museums appreciate. The aircraft are really set up nicely to get close, too, with a couple of exceptions. Apparently still as the result of damage from Hurricane Ike they have a PBY Catalina and a P2V Harpoon back behind some other aircraft. The volunteers were hard at work on a Dauntless dive bomber. They had a really nice Skyraider and later model Corsair that I got some good pictures of. The staff was also very friendly in answering questions. At one point they asked us if we wanted to go outside and watch them fire up the B-17's engines. That was a really cool experience.
In reading some of the reviews it is apparent that the museum is not what it was before Ike. However, it was well worth the money and my hope is that by generating some support for it they will be able to redo it to what it used to be.
