  • Amazing place! Everyone is super nice and willing to answer any questions. The restoration area is super cool.
  • A nice little WWII museum and restoration site. Really friendly people and great tour.
  • Large collection of beautifully restored, flight-ready planes. Lots of ancillary historical items and news. Full size mechanical biplane flight simulator. Friendly knowledgeable docents.
  • 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!
