Small museum, some interesting items, seems to be on the downhill slide as many exhibits are poorly maintained, gift shop is out of stock of most desirable items. Think it has seen better days.

This is a perfect day trip and is tuck out of the way. I wish it was know more or marketed better. It has lots of history and for boys, it keeps their attention.

The museum is full of history and artifacts. The museum houses an abundance of artifacts from airplanes, vehicles, and an abundance of military artifacts including uniforms, weaponry, and war trophies. The tour is self guided and there is so much that you cannot see it...More

This is a nice little museum, but it really needs financial assistance. The lawn, looking so nice in the header photo here, was overgrown... apparently there is not even anyone available to volunteer to mow it. Inside the two hangars is a mix of airplanes...More

Enjoyed the MANY model planes that are displayed in the entry area. Self-guided tour of planes and mementos from WW 1. WW 2, Korea, and Vietnam. I think children would enjoy being able to sit in a restored bi-plane.

Lots of awesome planes, models, and memorabilia to see. My son especially loved sitting in the Cessna and playing with the controls. Hoping to make it back out for an air show.

I visited this location with my son. We had a very enjoyable afternoon. Never crowded. The only complaint is if you go in the summer the heat inside some of the hangars is not so fun.

This place is a treasure trove of historical Aviation related memorabilia, with the these revolving around World War 2, but many other Civil Aviation subjects as well.
