  • Nice Little place to visit. Not well maintained though. Some of the information plaques were missing. maybe a half hour's worth of attractions. Worth seeing though. 
  • This park has a small indoor area which is interesting but the outdoor area is awesome for folks interested in military airplanes. I'm not into planes and I found it fascinating. 
  • a self guided park with free admission and plenty of parking. 4yr old loved walking around looking at the planes . it was a nice break from the beach thing for him 
  • Can't really beat free. Good inexpensive place to take your kids and see some cool plane models (small and life sized). We came the day after a torrential downpour so there was a lot of water outside to navigate around, as a previous reviewer noted. If you want a guided tour a sign at the front says to call ahead to register....not sure why as most of the staff I encountered didn't look too busy and barely greeted us. Oh well, 2/3 of my gang are probably too young to fully appreciate the tour anyways. There is plenty of information to keep you busy on your own however, from all the model planes, to the books, and the plaques filled with info, if you read everything you'll be here for hours. Playground outside was a nice touch for those with younger kids. Sign in and leave a donation in the box as you enter or before you leave...I'm sure it's hard to maintain something like this for free of cost.
  • The Air Power Park is from an era long gone. Go there and see the rockets, hack the Ingress portals, and do the easy missions. Avoid going there after rain as the walkway behind the building will be flooded. There is poor drainage. This small park is located beside a marshy area.
  • Small, but very nice collection. Only bad part is most of the outside displays are in very rough shape.
  • This is a little hidden gem of a place. For years I took my little ones to the playground, but what a neat visit when we went inside and learned a few things.
  • For a small museum it if full of aviation info, models and real missiles and aircraft. Well worth stopping
