  • Well put together, clean, lots to see and friendly staff. Also has many things to read and look at. Very educational. Make sure to give yourself time so you can read all the great History.
  • Took my kids there recently. The museum has excellent displays throughout. The historical stuff was a little dry for my impatient youngsters so I didn't get a chance to take it all in as deeply as is have liked. The equipment they have is quite impressive. The kids were a little disappointed they they weren't able to sit inside one of the many vehicles on display. There is so much to take in we totally forgot about the two planes in hangers outside! Next time... The staff were very pleasant and even changed my requested admission choice and saved me some cash. It's not out of the way but you wouldn't stumble upon it while driving so make sure you plan your trip. Well worth the time and money! Will be going back to doing taking it all in.
