I've taken my kids to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in DC, the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, and many others, and while this museum doesn't compare to those, I think it's better than the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin AFB and several others. While there are outstanding history lessons and mementos that will enthrall adults, the highlight for us was the kids section, the simulators were better than any I've seen at the aforementioned museums (except for the ones you have to pay for, and even then is a close call since you can't pilot those). While there's no aircraft carrier mock-up playground like in Pensacola, or a tower with real communications like at the Smithsonian, my kids got just as much enjoyment out of the Nicholas Beazley Museum than any of the others, at a fraction of the price.
