This facility should be visited more often. The collection of memorabilia and aircraft are well displayed and pay proper respect to the veterans who contributed to its history. Of particular note are the aircraft that are of flying status, and they can travel to airshows...More

Interesting museum with a lot of WW2 artifacts. Planes are amazingly well preserved and cut a at display of a rotary engine is very intriguing. Definitely worth a stop and look.
