  • I expected this museum to have more planes but was disappointed in that. It has some excellent information about the 8th and many of the units which made it up but has a very glaring omission--it has ...  more »
  • They have multiple real airplanes, which are very interesting. They have many memorials to the people who served there. A very realistic experience.  more »

  • It was a pleasant surprise how much I enjoyed this museum. We originally went simply because my husband is a history nut but I found it extremely educational and well put together. Great exhibition for only $12.00
  • Fascinating place! Very well maintained. Cool atnosphere to bring your interest in flights and their history. Small nice garden to walk.
  • A beautiful place to learn history. I love coming here and wish to encourage others to come as well!
  • Loved the visit. Very informative. This should be a must see for all children in school so that they know the cost of freedom.
  • Very well run museum that allows hands-on experience. Watching the movie in the bunker is a real eye opener and will draw you back in time. They have added some realistic settings you can walk through and even shoot a gun at incoming planes on the interactive video. Outdoors you can visit the little church and airplanes that have been restored and the gardens are a nice place to take a break. There is a restaurant on site and a gift shop and everyone is helpful and nice. It takes about two hours to really see everything, but you could easily spend a half day there. We were most excited to see the guys working on restoring a real plane in the mechanics shop right off the floor of the museum and they were eager to answer any questions about their work. If you do the Might 8th Air Force road race you also get free admittance to the museum and in years past they have given dog tags to age group winners that are placed around your neck by a retired military veteran, which is really an honor.
