  • My only visit here was several years ago, when my parents dragged me here against my will on a cold, windy day and I didn't have a hat or gloves. I'm simply not interested in aviation history (especially when I'm freezing). If you're really into planes and all that, this place is probably worth four or five stars.
  • AWESOME place to go look around. Bring the whole family. Lots of cool history to be seen!
  • Awesome museum! TONS OF airplanes! I wish we lived closer.. I would live there, volunteer to help restore with my bachelor's of aeronautical science education from ksu Salina, and learn more about our history....... I was driving near and made a point to stop in to show my son a peak of the place. The staff are wonderful people, they are a pleasure to speak with and listen to their knowledge/experience. Volunteer run and operated as a non profit. They have a very nice giftshop with all kids of toys, trinkets, memorabilia. Profits from the giftshop go to help reach the overhead and upkeep of the aircraft. I wish the history didn't involve the death of so many people. Good, bad, innocent lives lost to defeat enemies of goodness, love, equality.. The only downside is thinking about the lives lost to defeat and who were defeated fighting for evil.
  • Informal atmosphere. You get close enough to the planes that you can touch them. I highly recommend COMBAT AIR MUSEUM.
