There are lots of vintage aircraft outside and a plethora of bombs and missiles inside. The video presentations are very good. The museum is relatively small, but contains enough to keep you busy for a couple of hours. The museum hosts retirement ceremonies which can make it a bit crowded and restricts accessibility.

Decided to give this a go as we had a few hours to kill. A good range of American aircraft including fixed and rotary wing. Lots to see and do. Ideally visit if you have at least 2 hours to kill. Most good aircraft on the outside but a few good bits on the inside too such as the guy... More

Very enlightening as you tour through so many planes and learn so much about history that was never taught in any class room or shown on any TV show.

Much more to see than we thought there was. It was the morning well spent. Great family fun. We were privileged enough to see a retirement ceremony while we were there. Thank you to all of those who serve our military well. Especially those who can make it to full retirement. More especially the ones who paid the ultimate price.

This is an excellent free Indoor/Outdoor museum of Military planes, munitions and history. Highly recommend for anyone in the area. Also has Pokemon Go! and Ingress portals outside if you have kids who may not be into military/history stuff.

We saw this place by chance and I'm so glad we did. They have a very striking array of planes on the lawn raging from a b52 to a SR71 blackbird. The planes are excellent but hey have done such a great job on the inside from plane displays to many many guns and missiles. It also has I mock... More

This was an awesome place for our family to visit. It gave us time away from the beach. My children got to meet two active Air Force gentleman who trained dogs. They loved and asking questions. Great place to take the family
