It was interesting to visit. Not expensive to enter and three buildings. Air planes, military vehicles, military uniforms, and tons of guns, knives, mess kits, etc. We enjoyed talking to the volunteers.

Disappointing. We tried to visit on the USMC birthday, one day before Veterans Day, only to find that they are closed all week so that Footloose can perform there. Very strange seeing that it's a military museum yet they choose to close on two military...More

The admission was $10 per person when we went in Aug. 2017. There are 3 buildings with air planes and military related displays. Not everything is labeled. We enjoy all air museums so we were satisfied.

The museum is housed at the Drake Field airport in Fayetteville, and is close to I-49 on US-71. There is ample parking for RVs. This is a very personal museum that was very obviously created and curated by Arkansans with a love of the military...More

We've been regular visitors to this great little museum for more than twenty years, when my son was in elementary school. It's a good place for school field trips, and I'd the only place in the area for kids to see a WWII bomber, Vietnam...More
