    You got to stop here if your a "gear head". Lots of motorcycles, planes, a few boats. Plan for a minimum of 2 hrs. Well worth the price.

    This is a great place. Recently renovated. Lots of really cool stuff to look at. You can even walk through the restoration shop.... They're currently restoring a Curtis P40 Warhawk.
