Excellent museum, lots of aircrafts in beautiful condition, including MK 14 spitfire in flying condition. Lots of enthusiasts walking around more than happy to impart information about the display aircrafts. Many of them are ex- pilots.

We took our 9 year-old grandson. He was fascinated with the planes, the simulators, the film about the torpedo boats, and particularly getting inside the B-17 bomber.

Not as interesting as I anticipated. The docents were great, but I If you were in the Air Force or are a pilot, I a sure you would find it more exciting.

Brought visiting friends on Saturday. Wonderful experience. Heard interesting speech on WW 2, tried simulators, went through a real bomber & watched one of the old war planes take off & circle us 3 times before leaving the area. Docents are so knowledgable & seem to love their jobs! In the library, we paged through 1950's Life magazines & had... More

I have always been interested in aircraft and worked as a civilian contractor on navy aircraft my first job. My wife suggested this would be a nice break from hiking or to pool and we both enjoyed this visit. Most of the aircraft are WWII but they have a growing collection of later aircraft and are building a Korean and... More

One of the nicest air museums I have been to outside of Dayton and Washington DC. Just a really nice place. Lots of retired military folks around as volunteers with plenty of great stories and history if you are interested.

This is a great WWII centric air museum. The aircrafts are well maintained and the ample, knowledgeable and friendly docents and volunteers bring these well preserved historic planes to life. Much to see in the huge hangers with a few special non aviation displays. To top it all of, the snack bar located next to the awesome B17 sets made... More

I'm not really an airplane buff but the museum sounded interesting so I gave it a try. Wow, was I impressed! So much history, so many airplanes, and plenty of excellent staff to tell you about anything in the museum. Many are former military pilots and some have even flown several of the planes displayed there. It's not a "no... More
