Visited over the 4th of July weekend with spouse. I guess I was disappointed because I went in with high expectations and comparisons to such museums like the Smithsonian's Air & Space Museum, the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio, and the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida. This is not on par with those large collections. The obvious star of this museum is the SR-71 parked outside the front entrance, along with an F-14 Tomcat and a Virginia Air National Guard A-7 to the side. There are several placards all around the SR-71 with great tidbits of information. However, it being exposed to the elements as it is, is beginning to take a toll on this legendary aircraft. Fading paint, bird droppings on the underside wheel wells, etc. On the inside of the facility, there are several static displays, most of which are from the 1910s to pre-World War II. No warbirds with the exception of a Spad XIII; no WWII aircraft or jets with the exception of what's outside. Some interesting displays. Overall, I guess you get what you pay for at $6.50 per person. The facility is well-kept and clean, and the staff was friendly enough. All-in-all, it'll take up an hour of your day.
