Great place for all ages! Great docent who was well informed took us up to control tower. Interesting history of U.S. air force, all sorts of videos and documentaries, even toured the inside of a fighter plane. Fascinating and informative.

The AMC museum is a great place to visit if you like to get up close and even inside older aircraft. Make sure you take advantage of the guides. Everything is free which even makes it better. The 3rd Saturday of the month almost all...More
