This is a very well done aviation museum. The collection has good variety in age of aircraft represented and in the variety of origin points. Great examples of a variety of aircraft types as well, mostly indoors, with some additional outside the hangars. A gallery of aviation art is there as well. Aviation enthusiasts should find this museum worthwhile.

This facility has some of the best restorations of WW2 planes you will ever see and many can be chartered for flights.

This museum is small, but it is a lot of fun. Very rich in history and the planes are kept in pristine condition. They also have an art gallery. The tickets are very reasonable, just $10 an adult. Really a great place!

Clean. Organized. Orderly. Informative. In a way, it was thrilling to see and read about these old warbirds, and get up next to real Migs and even a Polish trainer jet. I LIKED it!

Get your fill of WWII military planes! Very approachable and interesting museum with good selection of military planes nicely restored. Also check out the art gallery off the main area for additional museum enjoyment.

This is a small museum but has several hangars filled with planes and details about them, from various periods of history. Don't miss the artwork section as well, inside. Some very interesting, signed pieces!

If this review is useful, please give me a “helpful” vote. 1. Bottom Line Up Front. As a retired Marine Corps Infantry Officer and history enthusiast, I have had the privilege of visiting quite a few (at least fifteen) museums of this type all across the United States so my expectations are typically very high; I was not disappointed.

Incredible collection of military aircraft and artifacts. The museum is home to a great number of aircraft engines and components from early aircraft, along with operational WWI and WWII airplanes. Great gift shop with videos and publications, and several events are scheduled each year.

The display is small but all exhibits are explained in detail. A few are outside, problematic in the below freezing weather we had, but the majority are inside (unheated) hangars and more or less protected from the weather. The art display is also interesting, with many paintings signed by the subject pilots. Overall I'd say the visit is definitely worth... More
