This is now my TOP aviatuon museum! The Goose is a marvel for certain ... just incredible!. Pay the extra money to go up into the cockpit. Sit in Howie's seat and feel the controls. The sapce side is amazing too. Well worth the money

What a stunning, wonderful and awe-inspiring collection of aviation and space exploration, beautifully displayed in beautiful buildings. If you or your children/grandchildren are remotely interested in flight or space you MUST visit. This is absolutely a full-day outing. Again, I suggest not visiting the web...More

This place is jam packed with so many aircraft of all types, you could spend days wandering. They often have volunteer veterans and aircraft enthusiasts onsite to answer questions and tell stories.

I love planes and am an aviation geek from way back. They have some cool stuff but many reproductions and some of the coolest birds - the F105G, am a7, the remnants of an f-106 - are outside in a state of near neglect. Admission...More
