I booked a flight for my husband for his birthday and it was well worth it. Visiting the museum is amazing enough, but the flight was wonderful. We’ll be going back before our membership runs out for sure!!

Interesting, the volunteers do a really job telling about the planes, the times etc. The interactive stuff s great for kids (sit at the controls of a plane amongst other things). We really enjoyed this
