  • With the top attraction being the SR-71 Blackbird, the entire museum was awesome. It is one of three Blackbird planes in the country that you can actually look inside the cockpit. My husband and I spe...  more »
  • Some are weathered but many look like they could be fired up, taxi and take-off. The F-14 has some weird missile looking things hanging on wing stations. Worth a visit!  more »
  • A really interesting local museum. You can walk around and see all the vintage aircraft on the field.  more »

  • If you're like me and grew up at the tail end of the Cold War, you have to check this place out. Mig Row is awesome. They also have their SR71 Blackbird in the hangar, and a Predator drone. And a scaled-down Little Boy. And a cluster bomb. And a tactical nuke. And so many other things, it's amazing. From WWII to Desert Storm and a little beyond, there's something here. Great people volunteering there, too. And astronaut icecream in the gift shop. Just saying.
  • The staff is great, the volunteers are so friendly and informative. the quantity of aircraft is outstanding. True Star of the show is the SR-71 but on weekends the P-38 is a show stoper. kids of all ages love airplanes.
  • This place is much bigger than you would expect. I didn't count the exact number, but it seems like there are at least 50 aircraft here. They've been open for about 23 years, and have acquired quite a collection. They got air craft from other WW2 all the way to current. Including an SR-71 Blackbird. While you can't climb into any of the planes, they do have a few displays of cockpits and navigation stations you can interact with. There's even a NASA exhibit that has a couple flight simulators running. Outside there's several jet engines on display. The volunteers have a wealth of knowledge, as several are veterans themselves. If you take the time they may even tell you some of their own experiences. We met a great man by the name of Doug that took the time to tell us about his time as crew on one of the tanker aircraft they have on display. When you go, plan on spending several hours here.
  • We loved the museum, but WATCH OUT! We went with a big group of family, and two of our cars got broken into before we had even gone into the museum. (We were standing outside of the museum looking at the memorials, and somehow didn't hear or notice anything until it was too late.) The museum is awesome and the employees were so so helpful and kind, but make sure to not leave valuables in your car. It sounded like car break-ins are a common occurrence here.
  • Great place, bigger than expected. Get ready to spend​ an afternoon at the the museum. My grandson loved it.
