This is a great place for kids and adults. We go every year. Each time I have heard an ex-Airforce visitor, talking & showing a plane he was in or a mechanic for to his friends or family. With great pride!

I am a history buff and this museum did not disappoint. The airplane displays outside are amazing and the inside has tons of interesting exhibits. The room of historical guns was terrific and unexpected. Take you time and prepare to spend several hours wandering around.

You should visit this before you start your vacation. It makes it a lot more interesting when you get to see them fly over plus they have a MOAB out front. That was cool!

Kids loved to see all the real life size military aircrafts. Even the museum inside was interesting to kids. We have gone twice and plan to go again. It's always a great place to take visiting family.
