There is an outdoor and two indoor collections, and all are well-maintained, with well-designed displays and placards giving the history and information about each aircraft...More

They have some cool stuff. Plenty of vintage Air Force jets. An SR71. Many older planes as well from WWII. It was presented well in the first hangar. In the second hangar the aircraft were simply on display with nothing to give it context.

Excellent place to learn about the history of the USAF, Hill AFB and the great service men and women who have defended the USA.

I went there because I love airplanes and in training to get my license so of course, I have to visit. It's so much bigger than other air museums I've visited in California (Santa Monica and Orange County). Great information and history, lots to learn.

Yes they are. The static airplane displays outside can be viewed when the museum is closed.

Suggest rent a car and drive there. All other options are cumbersome or costly.
