I don't know about other aerospace museum, but this one is GREAT! Along with the planes, copters etc. there is a whole bunch of military doodads on display. The history runs deep and the stories told by the local Veteran volunteers are not to be missed. My boys and I go every year, and it NEVER get old. Excellent!

Air Force museums are always a treat. They have access to free aircraft, after they have reached their end, so they are able to have millions of dollars of hardware for pennies. They also attract former aviators, maintainers and enthusiasts that will tell you everything you could ever want to know. Give them an afternoon to fill your head with stories, your camera with images of battle tested war machines and your heart with their stories of sacrifice and service with honor.

Great for kids and adults, especially if you like aircraft stuff. I especially liked the aircraft with weaponry that is aged. This was really enlightened by the fact that each branch of service has its own history of flight.

This is a great place for any age to go visit. They have an impressive museum of planes. They also have helicopters, flight uniforms through out the ages, and history of service women.
They have a gift store as well.

I try to make a visit every year during my annual ski trip to Utah. The Hill AFB museum is a great visit even if you’re not an aircraft or military enthusiast. The display of weapons is an eye opener. Once you see the size of the Gatling gun cannon that makes the A-10 “Warthog” the worlds best tank killer, I feel for those poor souls who happen to be on the ground when an A-10 comes calling. The SR-71 “Black bird” spy plane is also one of my favorite exhibits. Plan on spending at least a half of a day here to totally explore all of the indoor and outside exhibits.
