Enjoyed touring the museum and reading about the history from the area. Good interactive simulator for young people to get involved with and spark their interest. Highly recommend stopping by and spending an hour or two enroute to your destination.

Anyone remembering or had a family member in WW2 should visit here. It's preserving American History as told by many that were there. We're losding too many of the veterans from that Era and this is a memorial to their heroism!

What a well done display. Exceptional collection of uniforms and everyday items, well displayed and emotional. Fun place to visit that is very reverent to the memories of the sacrifice and service of the Mighty 8th during WW2. Highly recommend this for everybody!

The majority of our exhibits are indoors. The Mighty Eighth is 90,000 square feet, and you can learn all about the Eighth Air Force walking through the museum.
