  • I am not a plane or military buff, so I didn't expect much. I was so pleasantly surprised. The inside museum had lots of very interesting displays and great explanations of the way people worked as part of the plane crews. We were able to go inside 5 of the planes outside. A retired military volunteer, Chuck Hastings (I think), was stationed outside of the Galaxy C-5 and he was terrific - so knowledgeable, personable, and welcoming.
  • Really awesome place. The planes on display are amazing - you can even go on a tour inside a C-5 plane. There’s also lots of models of different weapons, and stories about different wars. The gift shop is really nice too. Definitely recommend this place.
  • This site upholds the level of professionalism of the military in the way they restore and display their aircraft. It is a must see for even the casual aviation buff. Every 3rd Saturday is when they have the largest number of aircraft open to go inside. The museum is free, but will take donations. A great view in to aviation history. The volunteers are awesome, and are available to answer your questions.
  • Excellent display of U.S. military transport and logistics aircraft. From the C-5 to the C-47, it's all here. Unusual examples like the C-7 Caribou, and the Douglas C-133 are represented as well. The exhibits on display inside do well to explain the history of military air mobility, and also showcases a beautifully restored B-17G. Highly recommended for all aviation enthusiasts.
  • With many variety of planes in the outdoors and exhibits and aircraft indoors this is a nice museum and it could be very very interesting and useful for those who are interested in aviation. In the planes some of the are guides are former technicians who are real experts about those planes and their history. And its a free of charge museum which makes it even more attractive especially when you think about museums what were just established to charge entrance fee. Museum is family friendly, families with young kids too comfortable visit this museum.
