Incredible collection of military aircraft and artifacts. The museum is home to a great number of aircraft engines and components from early aircraft, along with operational WWI and WWII airplanes. Great gift shop with videos and publications, and several events are scheduled each year.

This is the second time our reunion visited this museum. Always a great place to visit especially with our veterans group - very clean, informative and great planes to visit and walk around.

Good variety of historic aircraft. Seeing the museum's World War II P-51 Mustang fighter power up was especially thrilling. You can schedule rides in several of the aircraft and we saw several taxi off to the runway.
