    Spent two hours recently touring this wonderful museum. Covers a lot of WWII history that most people are not aware of. The museum people were very helpful and we actually found references to my brother-in-law's father who was a glider pilot during the war. Robert Hills participated in Operation Market Garden and he is in their database. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there and will eventually bring my B.I.L. back so that he can talk directly with the museum folks. Was able to share some history about how the Steinway Piano Company made glider parts during the war. Well worth the money!

    Spent an hour going through this important military museum. I had heard of gliders being used in WWII but learned so much here where pilots trained. Watch the video first and then enjoy the displays, arms, and planes. A very well put together museum.

    I only had a short time to visit but thoroughly enjoyed this museum. I thought the displays were informative and well done. As a former Link Simulation employee I was really surprised to discover they have a very nice early model Link Blue Box simulator display. Very cool to see one in such nice shape with a great display detailing get how it was used for training WWII pilots. I hope to get a chance to go back a revisit this museum when I have more time to spend.

    I enjoyed it. The museum focuses on the important role of US Gliders during the World War 2. Very well displayed artifacts in incredible good shape. A real glider is even displayed inside. If you visit Lubbock, this is a good stop.
