Very interesting and informative museum for military air craft. You get to be up close with the air craft on display. Great way to spend time with family and stay cool indoors.

This is one of the best museums for armament and airplanes that I've seen in awhile. With a small donation you can enjoy as much about the Armament classes of the Air Force Navy Army and Marines. A must do on the herbal Coast!

Everyone is very informative, helpful and so nice. So much to see in such a short time we had. I would highly recommend this place. Please Do drop a few dollars in the donation box as every penny counts to keeping this place going.

They have an SR71 Blackbird, Many Viet Nam, Korean war planes and ordinance. Plenty of outside static displays. The indoor museum was closed when we went by. Even with it closed we had plenty to look at.

We enjoyed our visit to the museum. The free admission is a bonus! The displays inside the building provide a lot of information. The planes and helicopters outside were fun to look at up close!

So cool, ans so much to see in a small area. And love the acres of planes outside and the so many neat bombs and historic armament inside. Really informative and set up well to take in. Rain or shine you can enjoy this place.

So many planes. If you enjoy looking at aircraft up close, this is one of the best places you can go to. Best part is that it's free.
