  • Guides were great! Very knowledgeable and loved what they did. Some incredible exhibits here!! They let you sit in most of the aircraft they have on display. Very nice people. Just don't accidentally wander into the military base beside the museum.
  • Wonderful exhibits about aviation history. Going there at less busy times allows extra tlc from the extremely knowledgeable guides. And getting to sit in the cockpit of multiple planes. Ever expanding exhibits and personal history. You could spend a whole day, or just a few hours here. Very reasonably priced.
  • This place is open on Monday on holidays and on school vacations... but not many people are here I think because of Google being Incorrect and refusing to cooperate with updating hours. Google please get on this. This is an amazing place that I almost didn't come to because you said they were closed. It can't be that difficult to change your hours for museums purposes...
  • Great collection of vintage aircraft, one of the top 3 in the country. They've got a huge collection, both indoors and outside. A few if the outdoor planes were damaged in a tornado years and years ago and havens been repaired yet, it's very unfortunate. They do open cockpit days too, so you can actually sit in the planes and really enjoy the history
  • Amazing! I massively underestimated the time it would take to see this museum! Spent almost 2 hours in the first room seeing all the exhibits, sitting in cockpits, and talking to the veterans and staff about various military and passenger aircraft. Will have to come back for the other 2 rooms which I ran through and realized they would easily take a full day. Aviation buffs eat your heart out!
