We will definitely visit again. Our 17 year old daughter loved it. Air Force 2 that was recently retired is located here. It was very interesting. We were lucky enough to have a guide available to escort us into all the planes outside we wanted to go in. He was quite knowledgeable about all of planes. I wish I remembered... More

We took our 3 grandchildren ages 2, 5, and 9. There was something for each of them to look at, enjoy and learn.

The parking and admission are free, and the tour guides are volunteers with Air Force experience. This museum might appeal to engineers, military and social history buffs, pilots, flight trackers and children. There are planes inside and out (some open to the public on a regular day), a control tower, displays in a hangar, a small gift shop, WWII music... More

Imagine flying today by the power of a propeller. To see these aircraft that helped save the world is worth the time and effort to get to the Air Force base.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the Air Command Military Museum. There were about 25 airplanes in the hangar, ranging in size, age and purpose. The first one was open to the public to enter, Air Force Two. I didn't no until today that there even was an Air Force Two! There was a guide inside who explained... More

It's on the Air Force Base ground, but has completely separate entrance, so there is no bureaucracy entering. Once you park, (ample space) you are greeted by happy WW II music coming from the loudspeakers. When you enter the hangar, you encounter the room of the volunteer guides, all former air force personnel. Plan to spend 2-3 hours on the... More

Visited with our Girl Scout troop. Guides are very helpful and proud of their collection. Kids were able to climb right up into cockpits. They had a great time.

Our son is in the USAF and when we came to visit with him he brought us to this museum. It was so nice and the people that explain the exhibits were very knowledgeable and most were retired Airmen themselves. I highly recommend a stop here.

Saw this listed as a place to visit on trip advisor. The indoor museum is confined to a good size hanger that displayed smaller aircraft and related displays. I found it very interesting and the volunteers very helpful. The outside array of aircraft was amazing. We went inside a few as the weather was raining and some were closed to... More
