When you enter the grounds, your experience begins. The volunteers are members that experienced war first hand. When you leave the museum, you will want to return.

Spectacular historic location to board all kinds of planes and learn of their legends and impact in US history when used. Great Docent tours on site. Truly a blast!

Had a wonderful time visiting this museum. Many planes one can get close to. Suggest that you take a guided tour to gain access to the inside of some of the planes. And it's free. Can't beat that.
