  • The exhibit was quite interesting and the staff was exceptional. We recommend this to anyone interested in WWII history.  more »
  • This is a small, very neat and do-able museum. We spent 1.5 hours - 2 would do it completely. The planes, all of which are airworthy, are well situated and give an insight into aviation in World War 2...  more »
  • These planes and the memorabilia are so interesting and they often have unique events, where a pilot will fly one of the old war planes. Visits from past pilots, and other interesting people  more »

  • Very nice museum with a super-friendly staff! As the airport is right next to this place, we could see the planes take-off and land from the museum. Our 4 yr old loved it! Overall a great experience.
  • So so cool! Recommended for any war/history buff. Also great for a short trip, no longer than 2 hours
  • very well preserved and care B17, the small cinema shows a movie with original videos of WWII is small but very beautiful plane, in addition to some cars of collection and a German jeep
  • Lot more than I expected, get a one volunteers to take you through it makes it so much better
  • This is a very nice collection of plants and occasionally a few of General Lyon's collector cars. The docents are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
