  • Fantastic place to see and experience a slice of ww2 history. There is a great display of original uniforms and items that give you a sense of how those who flew in the war lived. One of the hidden gems here is an original chalk board with original un-restored chalk and art from a school house during the mid-war tracking the students fundraising efforts for the war. Absolutely amazing story. In addition, there is the usual historical aircraft, some still running, and vehicles from the time. There is a static aircraft that is available for walk though and cockpit sit down experience. Toddlers will enjoy 'flying' one of the 2 pedal planes around the hangar to each exhibit. Although not the largest museum, a great experience worth every dollar. Don't miss the memorial walk on your way out.
  • Absolutely amazing staff! Some of the friendliest people I've ever met run this place and make it an absolute joy to visit. If you are in the area, check this place out for sure!!
