Went here with two toddler aged kids and two adults. There were enough interesting exhibits for all ages. A lot of hands on activity and a couple of rides including a flight simulator. The staff was helpful even though their English was limited.

The museum was huge and full of beautiful aircraft. My favorite part - the display of hundreds and hundreds of model airplanes from around the world.

Great spot with superb scientific exploration for the kids. Top notch aviation museum that really wouldn't be expected in such a rural spot. Misawa's aviation history makes this a real gem.

It's a great place to bring kids on a rainy or snowy day. The park would be a great place for a family picnic. Make sure to check out the jets parked outside.
