This was a nice museum and my family and I enjoyed our visit. Admission is free although donations are requested. There are a lot of interesting facts and displays of firearms, war planes and missiles. Nice way to beat the summer heat.

This is a great place to go when it’s raining or if you have history or aviation buffs and your family. You can’t beat the price!
