  • It's a shame to see such amazing aircraft wasting away stored outdoors, but you can get up close and personal with some iconic aircraft! They do the best with what they have, I'll be stopping by again if I'm ever close by again.
  • Very unexpected quality air museum given city size. Volunteers were very knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Veey beautiful old Navy air force plane.
  • My 2 year old was thrilled to be able to sit up in the helicopter and check out all the cool airplanes. The gentlemen at the museum spent time undivided time with us even though they were busy preparing for a special event. We loved the tour and all the interesting facts and stories.
