Worked an event here, and it was a lot larger than it looks like! There's a full size plane on the lower level! Lots of great artifacts and corresponding history. Lots of war memorabilia!

WWII museum dedicated to the "Ace of Aces" who shot down 40 enemy aircraft. Nice and clean museum with wonderful staff ready to share their passion and knowledge. Worth a stop.

The museum is really well done and focuses on Richard Bong, the first ace in the Pacific during WW II. It is well done and takes about 2 hours to go through. Great local pride for Superior WI.

This museum is right on the lake with a nice walking trail just behind it. The exhibits were well presented and the video was interesting.

Richard Bong grew up in the Superior region and was the most successful flying ace of wwii. The museum is a tribute to his outstanding career, and to the fine person he was.

This is dedicated to WWII Hero Richard Bong from the small (tiny) town of Poplar WI. It has artifacts from his service in the Army Air Corp as well as items from Korea, Viet Nam and other conflicts. A great lesson in history.
