  • Air Force history is well documented at this beautifully staged museum. Aircraft as well as bombs are on display outside, with signage highlighting their role in national defense. Several inside...

  • Wonderful mostly outdoor museum with lots of great aviation history. Husband who is a military buff loved it. You can’t climb in or on the planes but kids still enjoyed it.

  • Wonderful place, got to see some awesome aerial combat artifacts! Excellent displays both indoors and out. Bring the kids, fun for the whole family. They also have picnic tables, so we enjoyed a nice lunch before exploring the grounds. Free admission, so don't forget to donate. Also hit up the gift shop on the way out, lots of good stuff.
  • Very educational. We were in the area for Spring Break from Texas. My kids enjoyed looking at all the different planes. Lots of good info and history to look back on. It would have been neat to go in some of the planes but it was not offered on this specific day we were there. We loved that it was free! It was especially fun for my husband who served in the AF himself. Highly recommend!
