The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum is a museum focusing on aircraft and nuclear missiles of the U. S. Air Force. The objective of the Museum is to preserve and display historic aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles and provide STEM education sessions to the young generation. The Museum is a $29.5 million, 300,000-square-foot (28,000 m2) building that features a glass atrium, two aircraft display hangars, a traveling exhibit area, a children's interactive gallery, a 200-seat theater, a museum store, an aircraft restoration gallery, and a snack bar. The glass atrium is constructed of 525 glass panels that encase a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The Museum hosts regular travel exhibitions and several special events throughout the year. The Museum's Education Department is committed to fueling the curiosity of children across the Midwest and to educating them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Regular STEM sessions, workshops and camp programs are available at the Museum.

The B-25, B-17, B-29, B-36, B-47, B-58, B-52 and the B-1... a roll call of strategic military aircraft that has brought us from WWII to today. There are other essential aircraft to see (SR-71, U2, B-45, Vulcan, F-111, F-86, F-4, XF-85, etc) and many other...More

One of the smaller air museums we have visited. Was a disappointment after being at larger facilities, that didn't charge admission fees. I personally felt was overpriced for the displays.

As soon as you walk through the door and meet the SR-71 face to face (literally staring down at you) the idea that all you are going to do is look at a few planes is shattered. The museum of course has an impressive collection...More

We were excited to take our kiddos, but were actually disappointed. At the black hole exhibit, close to half of their learning activities had either out-of-order signs, or just didn't work. Many other things were not working in the facility (the lower drinking fountain, the...More

Probably the only way is a taxi but may be cheaper to rent a car. It is just off I -80 so very easy to get to. But is several miles from Onaha depending where you are in the city.
