Great place to see memorabilia and old airplanes. A bit pricey for what you see but great to help museums like this.

We drove from Flagstaff only to find out that it is closed October to March. All sites showed it was "open now". None of their ads showed seasonal.

This is a nice stop if you are heading to or from the Grand Canyon. It is about 33 miles north of Williams and the cost was nominal at around $7. Lots of patches for sale and several one of a kind aircraft.

Not so many planes, but numerous detailed displays lovingly filled with all aspects of flying. Definitely worth a visit if in the area.
