My husband and I loved this museum. Dale Ashbury's Mission presentation moved me to tears, and I especially loved the part of the museum dedicated to the brave women pilots (WASPS).

I was very impressed with the exhibits and the honour bestowed upon not only the US Mighty Eighth but also the Royal Air Force were very well represented and respected. The volunteers were very passionate in telling you every aspect of each exhibit.

Allow plenty of time as there is a lot to see and read. The planes and history here are a must see. There are a lot of artifacts on display and the history of them.

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.
