  • Great experience. Free admission. They have planes from every era of aviation. A lot of information and a great place to learn something new. Run by volunteers and it is pet friendly! It is a fun experience for anyone.
  • Hill Air Force Base Museum has almost every kind of plane or helicopter that you would like to see. Plus it's free. Some are very old from the past World Wars and some are from the present modern times. Hill Air Force Base Museum houses one of the fastest and most famous planes ever to fly the sky's of the world. It is the SR -72 black bird. There is so many informational exhibits to see that you will spend hours touring the museum. Easy place to navigate around with the floor plan easy to follow. Great place to bring the family and friends for group activities.
  • This place is awesome when you want to see how far we've come, with respect to flight technology. And then outside collection was recently updated, so that's a bonus. In addition to that, it's a great place to go that doesn't cost you a dime. Go her definitely for a great time.
  • If you're into Air Force History this is a pretty cool museum. My toddlers loved running around outside by the planes, but became very bored once we went inside. I personally like to read about the history and everything but not the kiddos. If you've been to the AF Museum at Wright Patterson, this is not as cool as that one.
  • Great museum. Very well curated exhibits and entrance is free, although they do ask for a donation.
