  • Amazing history here , staff were very friendly , can get up close and even in some planes. Wonderful experience and will be going back , so much to see and read and want to watch some videos from the Veterens who have things in the museum. Very fair prices and worth the trip!!
  • A very nice place to spend an afternoon, with many, many planes. See engines, whole aircraft and even sit in a cockpit. Probably a place more suited to older children as its a lot of reading and walking. Low admition fee of only 10 dollars too.
  • Excellent museum! Lots of planes, lots of history. The Heroes room is so humbling and important. We must always remember those who have served.
  • Great place and my toddler absolutely loved it! Can't wait to go back again!
  • It inspiring educational and informational. So proud of every man and woman who have served and are serving
