  • Hidden inside the USAF Museum - do check which days they are open - great hands on things for kids (or adults with kid like minds)

  • Absolutely incredible museum!!! It's fascinating for people of all ages and ranges of interest, you could spend several days going back and learning something new. Plus it's absolutely free, making the education and the enjoyment more obtainable for everyone. I love this place.
  • Good place for who interesting in airplanes ✈️ and much more
  • I usually stop by this part of the museum when I am there. It has very nice displays and the astronaut suit makes for a good picture.
  • Trick or treating today at the museum with the kids
  • It is free. It has a lot of aviation history. Veterans available to discuss the various airplanes/helicopters. Plan on at least three hours to visit.
