Seven beautifully restored antique planes, a few older motorcycles, several special cars, a small, constantly-running movie theater and a friendly staff make this a fun, interesting place to visit.

Smaller museum with vintage cars, motorcycles and aircraft. Even a small theatre to watch a short aviation film (loops around). This museum rents out space for events, we went on a Saturday around 2:00pm and they were setting up tables for an event which blocked...More

It's a great venue for work parties. we were able to sit around all of the planes, take pictures in front of them, and even walk inside these old planes that flew in WWII and shortly after. Very Interesting place!

It is not huge but they have the planes well displayed with information about each plane. It is all indoors so you can visit anytime of the year. The vintage vehicles are beautifully restored. I highly recommend a visit.

I give very few Excellent ratings to my reviews, but this museum is deserving. General William Lyon has put on display equipment that was used in WWII. Planes, trucks, motorcycles, bombers, transports all in working order. Docents are available to explain what you are seeing...More
