    The museum is relatively small, but is free, and very informative and inspiring. The stories of these ladies deserve to be told! The exhibits are fascinating and they've done what they can with the small space they have. I gave it four stars because I know there's room to grow and I really hope this museum does!

    Hard to figure out the parking and other than a couple signs pointing in the general direction it isn't easy to find. Even the sign for the museum inside faces inside the airport.

    Relatively small building for a museum. Very few exhibits. It's free to enter though.

    The pictures of astronauts had my 6 year old daughter excited about space and aviation . She sat inside an old plane and pretended like she was landing on the moon. My son sat at the old Control console and played Mission Control.
