Great day out for the family, open daily. General entry is affordable but if you go for the "add on" tours it becomes expensive.

If you love aircraft this is a must. $20 an adult or $15 if you’re a senior is great value. The tours are run by volunteers and are a must, as is the walk thru in the 747-400. If you’re a bit nimble you can...More

Stories our guide told us keep us enthralled, the variety of aircraft is awesome and very interesting and just when you think the tour is over they take you to another part so the museum. Highly recommend this for a family day out.
