As much care went into the airplanes as the building! Absolutely beautiful grounds and building. So much history retained in this museum. Everyone interested in aviation should come here.

This is a kid-friendly museum. I would say 5-years or older so they would see the "cool" planes. There are no interactive displays, at least not when we were there last.
