Such a neat place run strickly by volunteers telling history that they lived. This is such a neat stop, we will definetly stop again. It gave me goosebumps to be standing beside aircraft that was used in war to defend our freedoms. Plus the men that volunteer there are the men that lived this history, really neat to hear the...

I reviewed this attraction several years ago. My previous review is not accurate, the Museum has made substantial exterior improvements. There are significant air-frames here that are displayed much more appropriately. This is a small private attraction that likely receives minimal funding support. These improvements deserve a new look at some incredible air-frames. Please consider stopping by and supporting this... More

This museum is basically in my back yard and had never been. We have traveled the country visiting air museums at DC, Pima, Dayton, Intrepid, USS Midway and EAA. This is a very brief stop museum. I thought the best part was a gentleman who was talking about his time in Vietnam. Like any museum, a docent or ambassador is... More

If you are into vintage aviation, this is a great place to visit and learn. It's hard to believe that there was ever anything but jets, but you can learn about what existed before.

Planes stripped of engines sitting out in the weather. Hmmm. I've been to lots of air museums, and this is more like a parts bin.

Skeletons of airframes on bales of straw. I stop by airplane museums and have been very impressed by the Richmond, VA, Camarillo, CA, Boeing Museum. The Museum of Science and industry has a wider range. This is obviously a private collector that has managed to obtain an number of weathered airframes. Check to see if it is open, because most...
