This place is huge. All the planes of the past with the Blue Angels are neat to see. There are simulators to ride and so many other exhibits. Admission is free.

Always a good place to take family for the day. Had put my pocket knife back in the car and they did purse searches. The max flight ride was a good time. $20 for 2 people well worth it...wish the little diner would stay open..
