Thoroughly enjoyed the plane simulator. Could understand what it felt like to be a paratrooper. The adjacent Dead Man's Corner Museum was small, but interesting.

I was advised to go and visit this place and I was pleased that I did. The simulator was really good. The museum was well laid out and I thoroughly enjoyed the walk through in the Dead Mans Corner house.

Duped is the single word I think of when processing our experience at the museum. The Museum has a marvelous website with a well-organized children's guide (print before going). It sounds engaging. Indeed artifacts are very well presented and tell a story. Unfortunately, the simulator...More

I'm would suggest 2-3 hours unless it is during the June 6th events. I was there during the events and was it an hour wait to get in the C-47 simulator. I don't think it will take very long during other dates.
