This museum will take you back in time. They have a little of everything that has to do with transportation through the years. We could hardly get our men to leave the place. Very interesting. Could have used more time.

Nice, quiet museum. Lots of outdoor history - airplanes, a train, a few automobiles., and tractors. Even an old air traffic control tower. A quiet setting and a few picnic tables. Bring some snacks and let the kids explore .
