  • I would recommend this Museum to anyone, even if they are not into planes. The history that they are preserving is refreshing and so important. 
  • Outstanding tour!!! Our guide Dave was well-informed, willing to take questions, and sincerely interested in the museum and its success. Lots of planes and even more stories. A great way to spend a couple of hours.
  • One of the best WWII museums. All the old planes. Because an actual WWII veteran was in my group, we were allowed to enter back storage closets and private hangars and restoration labs. For the same reason, we were able to see some original, unrestored planes and parts. And get this - we were able to touch a piece of the USS Arizona (a rusted old piece)! Awesome!
  • Large collection of beautifully restored, flight-ready planes. Lots of ancillary historical items and news. Full size mechanical biplane flight simulator. Friendly knowledgeable docents.
  • Lots of historical items, interactive things for the kids, takes a couple of times to see everything. Great group of volunteers!
  • Outstanding Warbird & history Museum! All but one plane is flown regularly - be sure to schedule a tour with a Docent and spend a few hours here - you won't regret it!!
