This museum was recommended to us by family members and we were so glad they did. We really enjoyed all the information and displays and especially the PBY seaplane! Well worth the time and a great value.

Great museum with a simulated flight station, video of old runners interviewed, photographs and uniforms. Extremely informative. Also a PBY plane.

From the outside of the building which is in a strip mall, the museum is a surprise treat. Very interesting information on the history of the PBY Naval airplanes. Also interesting facts of warfare. Don't miss the flight simulator and movie!
