  • This was one of the best museums we have stopped at on a military base. It is deceiving in size and has an unbelievable collection. Has volunteers working it and we had a couple of them that were ther...  more »

  • If you love history, come visit this museum! Well done, beautiful displays. Plenty to see both inside and outside. Quite a large variety of aircraft for a relatively small air museum.  more »

  • This is the best museum in the western United States. That's it; it's that good! The staff is friendly and freely answers questions. The admission is FREE, but you can make donations should you feel so disposed. Two giant hangers display most of the 60-70 aircraft (I've never counted them). The hangers are heated and cooled making a comfortable place explore the exhibits. During the summer there are activities and classes for children. They too are free of course. It's a great place for a family event, especially given the price. Aircraft legacies of World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietman and the Cold War are organized to create a unique educational opportunity. This is a must see if visiting Utah. I can't believe IT IS FREE!
  • 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.
  • I'm not into military aircrafts myself, but it was amazing to see the types of machines used during different eras and the people who changed the world, both in the field of technology and the battlefronts of war. The information at each exhibit was presented in a way that was informational and to the point. I was reminded of how many people have given their lives for our freedom. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Free to visit, great displays, and enthusiastic staff. Everyone should visit at least once. My time spent here with my family made me feel proud to be an American.
  • 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.
