This is an incredible museum to visit. We learned about a part of WWII history that we really were not aware of. It's well organized, has many interesting exhibits, and was not crowded.

Wonderful museum - did a great job of telling the history behind the use of gliders in World War 2. I have been to several other CAF museums and didn't know they had one dedicated to gliders. Exhibits were very well done and very informative.
