Planes of Fame Air Museum Reviews
We came here on an afternoon in the spring for my husband's birthday, he loved it and so did the kids (ages: 7, 6, 4, 2). We brought a stroller for the 2 year old, there was plenty of room for strolle... more »
The planes are displayed very well and the docents are very informative. Hangars full of history. I liked it all but the WW2 jet engines I had not seen before. more »

We bought our tickets on Groupon for a great deal. We went around noon on Sunday (Christmas Eve) and it was completely dead. 3 cars in the lot. We spent about an hour walking around, and looking at all the planes. It was interesting. They don't give you any history on the planes, which is disappointing. Just a map, with the names. There isn't anything interactive. You can't get inside any of them. There is a tiny helicopter outside with steps that are very wobbly, that you can climb in and take photos with. There are about 4 hangers with planes, then a bit outside. You must pay close attention. A lot of the planes are all over, and the wings and propellers are eye level. So you could easily get hurt if you don't pay attention. Also, where there are things roped off, the poles stick way out. I tripped over one. It was fun. A one time kind of thing. There is no place to get food. There are a few soda machines. A gift shop. Pretty pricy. We get shot glasses when we go places. Usually 3-5 bucks. There's was 9. There are restrooms. Fun little place to go to waste an hour.
Excellent aircraft exhibit, the gift shop with many items most planes still fly and are used in the shows they have during the year. Excellent place my best the P-38 !!
Attended museum as part of a color guard for special presentation. Stayed to listen to guest speakers (they were great) and then walked through the static displays off all the aircraft. All in all it was informative and educational. Had a great time. Will go back.
The museum was amazing! So many great planes. Hope it continues to showcase our air history. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Great air museum focusing primarily on WWII aircraft. Most of the planes are airworthy and can be seen in the air at various times during the year. Before or after your visit, drop by Flo's Cafe (just 2 minutes up the road) for some hearty chow.
