  • Visited this gem of a museum and it surpassed my expectations. My husband and I spent 2 and 1/2 hours and could have spent 6. The aircraft are fantastic, and far larger than I had imagined. I got to s...  read more »
  • Since we were nearby, we decided to visit the Museum. The entrance to the Museum could be better signposted. The Museum was absolutely worth seeing. The mix of information and exhibited aircraft and helicopters fit easily. In addition to the Militärmaschienen civil aviation also not neglected. The B-29 was especially impressive

  • We have been to the air museum a number of times with adults and small children. They have something for everyone. 
  • A great museum with a lot more then I expected. Displays can shift so don't be surprised if you see something new or missing. But their headliner, a B-29 has a new hanger and a lot to discover. Try to hit a special event to learn even more about the plans and Aviation History
  • One of the few great museums in this state. Love that you get up close and personal with history. Kinda sad that they reduced the accessibility to a lot of the aircraft from since I was a kid; but I get it, they need to preserve them. Still its exciting for the kids as they get to touch and sometimes sit these artifacts from another era. Definitely worth the expense and trip.
  • Highlight of our tour of New England so far. We were met by Tom Stevenson who gave a personal informed and very knowledgable description of a number of the exhibits and even let us sit in a number of the planes explaining how they were controlled. A credit to your very friendly and interesting museum. Mike was helpful too. Certainly going to recommend that friends from the UK visit the museum !
  • As far as air museums go it's definitely worth a trip. The docents are all knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend to any museum or aircraft enthusiast.
  • awsome, informative, educational and great for children. many kid activities! affordable!
