  • 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.
  • Had our own personal tour guide & he is Very knowledgeable about every plane/vehicle in this museum. Plus he also let us see some cockpits up close...he even let me Sit in one of them😃!
  • Pack a lunch and bring plenty of water, i was there for five hours today and only got through maybe 60 percent of all there was too see. Planes are in amazing condition and phenomenal to see up close. Along with a lot of local history to tie it all together. Nothing but love for this great little treasure in our barren neck of the woods, and i cant wait till next time when I'll hopefully finish my tour.
  • A very interesting place with cars ranging from 1902 and aircraft from around the world - including South Africa.
  • This is an amazing air museum! Smaller but on par with the SAC Museum in Lincoln, NE. Fantastic examples. Thanks!
