I love WWI aircraft and they have plenty including a Corsair and Messerschmidt. Really interesting museum, very reasonable priced and LOTS of aircraft to see (not just WWII era)

Thank you, Fran! We're always delighted to hear about all guests, but particularly the kids, loving our museum. Bring them back this summer to see the new "Snoopy and the Red Baron" exhibit on loan from the Charles Schultz museum!!
