  • It's a great museum. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and will take you around an show you all the details of the items. My kids can't wait tongo back!
  • Great glimpse of history! Was wonderful to be able to have a very close up look with the planes, and see behind the scenes as well. Great volunteers, with a wealth of experience.
  • Excellent collection of aircraft and well presented. Well worth the visit.
  • We only had time for a quick visit, but it was fantastic. The kids loved all of the planes and simulators that they could sit in and play with the controls. I'm not an aviation buff, but I appreciated all of the rare and unique aircraft, and I'm looking forward to our next visit.
  • Nice little museum, only $10 to enter. You can get right up close to almost all the airplanes and go inside some of them. Very good place to bring kids.

Where to stay in Sidney

Sidney offers only a handful of tourist accommodations, all of which fit in with the area's relaxed coastal vibe. Choose from friendly inns and bed and breakfasts in the town center, or head a few minutes west to find a few larger chain hotels. For pure scenery, you can't beat staying on the seafront, where you'll enjoy the town's trademark sunsets and maybe even catch a glimpse of majestic whales frolicking offshore.
