  • Pleasantly surprised at the number and quality of planes on display. You can walk around, under and inside of some planes. Interesting for plane or history buffs or a fun family outing. Well worth the...  more »
  • There were fire red ants and the staff was not sympathetic to the situation of a young 7 year old getting bit multiple times.  more »
  • We went on a beautiful afternoon. If you are interested in the military or aviation, this is a great place to view planes up close. Twice a year they have open cockpit pit day. 90% of tour is outside ...  more »

  • The museum has cool planes, no doubt... but considering they survive on admission fees, the FIRM policy of paying full price when there's only 20 minutes until closing seems outrageous! $1.75/minute ($105/hr), for my daughter and I to enter just wasn't worth it. I guess the lesson here is to plan better and arrive EARLY!!!
  • If you like old planes with no signage, this place is great. There are some rare, magnificent specimen here but even with the $3 brochure it's tough to learn about what you're seeing or why you should care. If you bring an airplane nut with you it's a real treat.
  • It's a great place to go when they have some of the airplanes open. But this time I went they had everything closed. I'm pretty sure if they would of had some open the kids would of enjoyed it more including my daughter. Oh it was a field trip.
  • Truly the highlight of my summer was taking a trip to the Castle air museum. Some of the highlights was seeing a retired Air Force one plane and getting to park my car right along side an SR-71 Blackbird. The SR-71 was made with slide rules of all things. The Titanium used for the body was purchased from the Soviet Union during the cold war by a U.S. top secret front Co. There are so many really cool planes to see from the 40's all the way up to SST'S and even a B-52 bomber as well as bombs the size of big trucks. Over all it was a wunder full experience and I would recommend this place to everyone.
  • Excellent musuem. They have everything you could want to see. The B36 is especially impressive.
