  • This is a private small museum staffed by some very nice older guys who care fir their project. Worth an hour or so of your time. Best was going on board of the training aircraft for a shuttle pilots.  more »

  • This museum is a hidden gem for anyone interested in aviation as it has many civilian and vintage military aircraft, they have a few artifacts from NASA. The Gulfstream II modified to train NASA shuttle pilots with shuttle controls on one side and second pilot using original controls is outdoors along with Caribou military transport, you can enter inside and see for yourself the controls, the space provided for cargo and people, the old navigation equipment. They have an actual Korean war era M*A*S*H helicopter, a vintage passenger aircraft Douglas DC-3. There are many other aircraft -- ultralights, racers etc. The guides are volunteers and pilots, they are interesting to talk to, however it takes a bit of background knowledge to get started -- if you are in the area, you like aircraft and want to see the history for yourself, this place is practically a must.
  • Cool place to check out some history, the people that hang-out to show you around are great!
  • Small but very interesting place. Donation to enter and very nice guides. Great stop.
  • The only place I have ever heard of let a little boy have his birthday party inside an airplane AND play in the cockpit! Totally awesome place
  • C-7 Caribou outside on tarmac. DC-3 and P-51 Mustang inside museum.
