  • Planes, Motorcycles, cars, boats, and lots of other interesting stuff. This guy was into EVERYTHING! Very well displayed and a good gift shop, too.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting presentation in regards to one of aviation's pioneers. Learned a lot of things never taught in school. Knowledgeable staff.
  • 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.
  • There is a lot more to see than the website shows. Loved all the displays with excellent descriptions.
