I've seen lots of airport "museums" that amounted to a bunch of old junk thrown in a hangar. Well, this ain't that! Very well done, with great, professional displays and flyable WWII aircraft. Should be a MUST SEE on everybody's visit to Colorado Springs!

I haven't seen animals on either of my visits to the museum, so I'm doubtful. Your best bet is to call ahead and ask.
