  • So glad we spent the morning at the War Eagles Museum! It was very interesting. I liked the way every plane and car, as well as all the 'extras' were explained; you could spend a lot of time here if y...  more »
  • It was a great tour for about 1.5 hours. Great displays and really great explanations for them also. The aircraft were in pristine condition and the staff was very helpful. Its a little ways off the h...  more »
  • A beautiful Museum with an extensive collection of restored aircraft belonging mainly to the period 30-60 years. The ticket price is very cheap ($5 for adults, free for students), especially when compared to the size of the Museum and to the excellent guide that accompanies your visit. The Museum staff are delightful and our guide was a real aviation war veteran who, as you might guess, knew what he was doing on all aircraft exposed. There is also a good collection of old machines.

  • War Eagles is a fantastic museum to spend an entire day really walking and learning fascinating facts about the vintage aircraft on display. They have one of the few flying examples of a P-38 Lightning in the world, itself worth a look. The antique and classic cars are also a nice bonus. If you’re going in the winter time, bring a good coat, the hangar is cold. In the summer, it will get a bit warm. Even though it’s a bit of a walk, there’s a lot of stuff outside the hangar to see. And yes, veterans do get a discount with valid ID. A must-see for aviation buffs.
  • My experience here was fantastic. I love that the director(s) went out of their way to make Purple Heart Elementary memorable. I was a parent chaperone on this field trip and and will definitely will be visiting this museum on my free time. Vigil was our tour guide and made our trip so special.
  • We were very impressed with the spirit of excellence that pervaded this museum. It is well-organized and has many, many interesting displays! Our guests enjoyed it, too! We will definitely recommend this experience to others!!!
  • Take your kids here to actually learn about the past and how much technology has changed. Very knowledgeable staff! Cool place!
  • It was sooo awesome!! My girls enjoyed it. History is great for the soul.
