  • 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.
  • Great place. Very interesting and wonderful staff to answar all of your questions.
  • 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.
  • Excellent collection of aircraft and well presented. Well worth the visit.
