  • There is a plethora of information and an impressive display of aircraft at the museum. The volunteer staff have a great deal of knowledge are are very friendly. I have to say that since I have been to other museums (Pima in Tuscon & the Smithson in DC) I cannot say this is the best I have experienced. I know that this is a great collection for our location so I am rating it 5 stars. Very interesting & informative for all ages ..... I loved it!
  • Very well done. Self-guided tour let's you get up close and personal with all the aircraft. Starting with the B-52 outside to the B-1 Lancer inside, it is a walk through aviation history. I mean seriously, they have a B-1 inside the building. The planes are meticulously restored and very well displayed. Admission is very reasonable and and you are not rushed at all. There were a lot of people there when we went but it never felt crowded. If you are even mildly interested in aviation, this is a must-see.
