  • It was very interesting. All about the history of aircrafts with parts that are in very good condition. We entered with a donation price as they were doing some construction and did not want to charge us. We were also able to visit the back room where the workers were putting together a crashed P-40 warhawk. We were able to ask questions and get more details about the museum. I recommend this place if you are nearby.
  • Great museum. Great display of motorcycles and planes. Very cool place. Only down side is the kids corner is small and outdated.
  • Awesome museum with a focus on local aircraft history, and lots more from the "period". Amazing collection of boats and motorcycles and much more. A must see for the whole family.
  • We stopped in while they were remodeling. There are plenty of different machines and vehicles to see. I liked that you were able to get very close to most things.
  • Amazing museum with so many great planes and information I never knew about Curtis
