We are not fans of Superior, WI. We've had some unpleasant run ins with locals and we have not had very good hotel stays or customer service at shopping centers. We would however stop again to revisit this little gem and that speaks VOLUMES!
My Husband was a History major so we have stopped at countless (and I mean COUNTLESS) museums in our short 10 months of marriage alone. The Richard I. Bong World War II Heritage Center has been one of the most impressive that we have seen.
When you first arrive you are greeted by actual Veterans waiting to share their stories and thoughts with you. It is only $9.00 for adult admission and you begin with a short film that was very well chosen and informative. Upon completion of the film you are able to explore the displays at your leisure. The collection on display is quite impressive and very well laid out. There are clear labels and informative descriptions on everything They have a wide variety of delivery methods available with written information, media displays as well as interactive exhibits to enjoy and at the center of it all they have Richard I. Bong's plane beautifully refinished and on display.
If you are in the area I highly recommend that you spend some time here. Its great for people of all ages and for friends, couples, families and I'm sure it is even fun to explore solo.
