  • Multiple hangers of planes, cars and motorcycles through the years. Best vehicle museum I have ever visited (out of 11). The sheer density of vehicles is amazing. Some vehicles are staged with time relevant props to round out the stories connected to each vehicle. The car restoration hanger is open to the public.
  • This is a neat place to go to for any car, airplane, gun or history enthusiast. Also the people are great and you'll get to see many vintage cars and airplanes. I would definitely recommend stopping in to check it out!
  • This museum is a gold mine of historical machinery. It's is called an 'automotive/aeronautical' museum, but there is so much more than that! There are collections representing military vehicles, weaponry, small arms, motorcycles, antique toys, fishing lures, hot rods, americana, and even a few modern rat rods. Please go here and check it out, and give yourself an ENTIRE day to do it. There is so much to see and the staff is very nice and accomodating. Even the town near thus museum is historic and worth driving around and looking at.
  • Really a wonderland of aviation history and how pilots used to fly. Everyone is wonderful and knowledgeable. Love this place
  • This is an amazing museum. The place is huge and they have a massive amount of exhibits for the airplane or automobile fanatic. The staff was friendly, informative and helpful. It is an easy place to get to and is located at Ken Jornstedt Airfield (4S2). If you fly in they have tiedown spots just for the museum on the north side of the runway.
