Was reasonably priced and had several old world war II planes. Enjoyed reading about the planes and the men who flew and fought.

The aircraft at this museum are lovingly restored and cared for by the volunteers and staff. The layout is simple and it makes touring these aircraft at your own pace easy and carefree. It's a fairly undiscovered gem in Galveston.
