  • Very decent aircraft museum to visit, nice selection of planes from various time frames. The oldest being a 1908 Wright Flyer, the newest being a F-16 Viper. There's even a few Russian Migs, F-14 Tomcat & F-86 Saber. Admission is reasonable, good time for my Dad and grandson.
  • Great time and a lot of great volunteers. Expanding their collection and Museum. Really glad I got to stop and can't wait to see some of the stuff that they're refurbishing right now make it out on the floor
  • Excellent aviation museum with a wide variety of aircraft and historical displays. Friendly and helpful staff. Well worth the visit.
  • Wonderful afternoon at the museum. Perfect day for a flight on a B-25 bomber. Thanks to the Collings Foundation, for an awesome memory!
  • Very cool and interesting. Everyone loved it from my 4 year old daughter to my 68 year old dad.
