Take the time to check out all of their memorabilia and ask for a tour through the back. You won't regret it! My kids got to sit inside the aircraft and learn how to fly it.

THE best hands on museum we have ever been to. My daughter enjoyed climbing into the vehicles and "flying" the cobra. Highly recommend this museum.

This hands-on environment opened in 1994. It features a Cobra helicopter, a T-33 jet aircraft, Army Jeeps, trucks and other restored military equipment. Uniforms and medals are displayed from different branches of service. Very educational and informative. Highly recommend.

I loved the wide range of things, from little dioramas to flight simulators. It is set in an unassuming shopping center and they really have a wealth of memorabilia packed in there. The docents that work there really know their stuff. They had a restoration...More
