If you are interested in air planes this museum is a must. They have the largest collections of World War II flyable planes. They also have American history on the war and how the air power changed the outcome of the war.

The airplanes and helicopters on display were great to see. Loved the historical displays and technical information they gave about each machine. The docents were a lot of retired military with great stories.

You would need to check out the schedule of events at the museum. There was a USO show the day we visited, but not sure there is an 'every Friday night' type of thing.
