This Museum is a great experience for the entire family. The real planes and jets are fun to see in person. There are also items from history such as missiles, bombs, uniforms, and weapons.

There is a learning center for the kids. They can experience flight simulators and different science activities. We had a great time!

Great airplane museum for anyone interested in airplanes. Great for kids. Big range of planes from old to new. And it's FREE.

It took me a long time to finally visit this great Air Force museum. Driving by, it seems to be just a few planes outdoors with a small building. But one you enter the doors you start to realize that it is a lot bigger on the inside. A lot bigger! Amazing displays cover the evolution of military aviation from Wright flyers to SR-71 Blackbirds and much, much more. Best, it's free!

Took my boys ages 7 and 5. We started outside where you could walk around and look at the different types of planes. Some were so huge and it was crazy to be standing right next to them and seeing how small you are in comparison. The boys loved it! The only thing they were disappointed with is the fact that they couldn't go inside any of them. There are a lot of them and it can be quite a walk, so bring some water if it's a hot day. They have paved sidewalks all throughout, so you can bring strollers or wagons for little ones. We then went inside the museum building where there is a small gift shop and a room with other planes and other things to look at. They had replicas of nuclear bombs which was fascinating to see. It opened up opportunities to talk to my kids about war and the men and women that serve our country and protect our freedom. There is no admission fee to see any of this, but they have places where you can put in donations to help with the upkeep of this attraction. They also have volunteers there to answer any of your questions. Was a fun morning and would highly recommend.
