Travelled 2 hours to visit on November 6th. Arrived at 11am, waited until 11:30 - no gates opened and nobody about, despite website saying open today

Tried to call and no one to answer, really poor!!

A wedding or event with an aviation theme done here is done brilliantly. Rare and amazing aircraft and a WWII area features make this a memorable location for special events.

I'm not a plane fanatic, so my view is that of a layman. The museum houses about 20 planes in a nice hanger, and the planes are all in good condition. We were able to walk around and get close up to the planes, which are mostly military with a few exceptions. The hanger is quite tight for space, so many of the aircraft are very close to each other, and some are positioned below the bigger exhibits. It took us only about 30 minutes to stroll round. There's a small gift shop and a few snacks available. Probably worth the entry fee, but quite a small museum, not sure it lives up to its claim of the best aircraft museum in the world!

This museum was for many year one of the best in the United States. Possibly because of a remodelling program, many of the aircraft exhibits, some of which are unique, are not now accessible to visitors. This reduces the quality of the museum's appeal and interest.

Even although far less of the facility is on show than on my previous visit, I still thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

On account of there being fewer aircraft to be amazed at, it meant I paid far more attention to those that were.

The staff are welcoming, friendly and full of knowledge and only to happy to answer questions in an entertaining and enthusiastic manner.

I'll definitely be back and look forward to seeing the developments at the facility over the next few years.
