  • I'm surprised this place doesn't have more reviews. Its been here for a long time and its got some really amazing aircraft exhibits. Its one of those places that people from out of state come and visit and see in Utah but tons of people living in the area have never been to. Its a great place for a scouting, or family outing, and its free (suggested donation recommended). I always enjoy a visit here.
  • Lots of cool airplanes and lots of friendly staff! And it’s free! I hope you enjoy this place, I did! And if you want good stories of war you should definitely come here! It has good parking and it’s free to enter! It’s never very crowded here and it’s very clean!
  • A great place to visit. My son loves air planes so this was a great museum to visit. Lots of cool planes and aeronautical equipment. This museum is complimentary to the public but donations are accepted.
  • We love this place! They have a unique and amassed a truly astounding collection. To name a few - they have the only SR71C, plus F15, F16, A10, B17, P38, B1, P51, B29, B52, bunches of F4... sheesh I'm just scratching the surface! Planes outside - inside, on the ground and in the rafters! Need to also mention amazing displays for each war, replicas of many aircraft artillery and large bombs, free standing jet engines and cutaways, uniforms & suits, and authentic radar equipment! Oh I need to list so much more. You're just going to have to visit and visit again to absorb it all! Plus being at an active air base so getting to see and hear live jets flying and training! Free admission, go today!
  • It is fun to see all the historic Air Force planes. You can get a tour. A bonus is parking is free and admission is a donation.
