  • Great Museum! We were fortunate enough to see Air Force One from inside! Very friendly staff. He told us many surprising facts about the planes.
  • As with any not so interactive museum, it's just objects. But the good thing about this museum, is that there are always volunteers available. And they know what they are talking about, because they flew in the planes and helicopters. During the Vietnam War for instance. And were else do you get the chance to see the inside of a C5? Worth a detour.
  • This was a really cool place to visit. I would go back!!! My kids loved it too
  • I was on vacation and we choose this place to go to. Wao is a beautiful and peaceful museum. You can can see different kind of plane big or small.
  • This place is absolutely amazing! The maintenance on the airplanes is perfect. The staff is helpful. The museum is overall very informative (the history on the supply lines to Berlin is specially interesting). The store is really good too. It is worth checking and supporting with donations and purchases.
