  • We are regulars to the airplane museum. Not only do they have planes but they have fun workshops for kids during the summer!  more »
  • My kids loved getting up close to the aircraft. Be sure to sign in at the desk when you arrive so they can report the numbers and keep their funding.  more »
  • Easy on and off from the highway, they have an outdoor area with most of the planes in great shape. Think it was the B-47 needs a little TLC but I imagine the sun beating down on these lovely warbirds...  more »

  • Free admission. Have 2 large rooms if planes as well as outer display of old planes. There is also a hall of fame. Nice for people who like planes. It was a short 15 minute walk around the museum and a small gift shop. Donations are welcome.
  • Great place to see exotic planes, including the worlds fastest: the SR-71 Blackbird. Its super cool to see many type of planes, from bombers to helicopters. It hosts models of real-life nukes, torpedoes and even a cluster bomb type. You can get right up close to the planes and even have a picnic outside under a wing. The museum is well maintained, with nice bathrooms and well scrubbed floors, it has parts of a crashed plane that's on display. Basically its a very good museum. The only downside is the beverages machine outside isn't working. Besides of all the cool stuff to see, I did have interesting moments. While I was with my bros looking around in one exhibit when the fire alarm went off. We didn't see a single speck of smoke anywhere so we just walked out of the building by a nearby fire exit. By info transmitted through people, we figured out it was a small girl who probably bored and wanted to go outside. We waited outside and the firetruck came in about 2 minutes and we explored the planes outside while the museum got it sorted through.
  • If you enjoy the history of aircraft and air combat, this location should be on your short list. From the earliest days of aviation to the F-15 Eagle, you can see a tangible history of the aircraft or the US Air Force and the woman and men that fly them. The restorations are beautiful and the outdoor area is fun and interesting as well...personal favorites: SR-71, A-10, B-17 (look for a unique view of the world experiences by the ball turret gunner, and the CH-53 Pave Low.
  • This museum is great! There's loads of aircraft to see, a large gift shop and there's even a kids corner where fun things take place. Only downside is there aren't any aircraft or cockpits you can climb into.
  • It is inspiring, with stories of how past wars we fought. It is free, which means I can take my kids there on a weekend, every weekend if I wanted to without denting my pocketbook as some indoor museums can do. It is educational by making history fun and a little more interactive.
