    Took our grandchildren to this museum, they loved it. The planes are beautifully refurbished. Is a hidden gem of history. Would recommend visiting. Great for all ages.  more »

    This is considerably smaller compared to the Castle air museum and Palm Springs air museum. Many models are however airworthy. Some replica of rather rare German WW2 aircraft (FW190, Me163, He162) is located among the exhibits. Overall one gets the impression that the Museum suffers from a lack of space. Some are badly cramped together in the halls pressed. Weather in open-air some machines to himself. For fans, certainly worth a visit.

    Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Came away with greater knowledge about jets rockets and WW 2 prop planes. If you like vintage planes a must see. For those who might like to see the high tech of the mid 20th century it will not disappoint. Enjoy the history it is the real deal.

    Great collection of historic planes! Hangars have their own theme, (USS Enterprise section very amazing) and of course the awesome P-38 Lightning has its own hangar! Extra level of cool - most planes at the museum are still in flying form and used often! Highly recommended!

    Fascinating place, pieces of our history. A fun day. Close to "Yanks Air Museum" so you can definitely get your fill of legendary planes at both locations.

    Great place to visit to see the restoration and flight of war planes in general. The events that they host are a one of a kind. Very knowledgeable staff ready to answer your aviation questions. Many great speakers like the ones yesterday, who are a testament of living history. It's a lifetime opportunity to go see the speakers, for they're dying out and in their 90's. I can't wait until the 60th anniversary air show comes around the corner in May. It will be from the 6-7, and will be neat to watch. I'm only 27 years of age but I have much respect for the ones who flew them to the ones who restore them. My grandpa flew over the Pacific in WWII to escort bombers with the P-51D Mustang, and that's what I saw yesterday. What a beautiful piece of aviation machinery. - "Good luck and Godspeed."

    A great place for plane/WWII buffs - most of the planes are in flying condition, and they are all restored beautifully. Lots of historical artifacts as well - friendly staff and amazing history
