This was an amazing place to visit. We had a long talk with the man running the museum. He said they were moving to anew location. It was like stepping back in time. Very comprehensive collection. You could spend hours here.

This is a shame. Kingman has an amazing aviation history but you would hardly know it to drive around this former World War II Army Air Base. SO much history here that really deserves a huge gesture of memory such as a big museum, vintage planes on display, regular air shows and so forth. Surely there is room for a... More

I WAS THERE IN JUNE 2016 WHEN THE AUCTIONEERS SOLD HISTORY TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. All the memories, all the efforts of everyone that wanted to keep the history alive; everything about the museum has now passed with time. I wish Trip Advisor would update attractions that have closed to the public off the list of things to do. This... More

We stopped to see this as my father was stationed here in the War. The website does not mention it but the museum is closed and no longer in existence. There is no sign on the door or any info, I did find an article on line about it. Most of the displays have been sold or returned.

We had the privilege of visiting here on Veterans' Day 2015. We spent about 2+ hours at the museum and was given a personal, one-on-one tour by a veteran. There were photos of Charles Bronson, The Three Stooges, Marilyn Monroe, etc. showing those folks working or entertaining in this area of Kingman, Arizona at the military base. There were antique...

During my June 2016 they had already closed, returned the exhibits that had been loaned to them, and then held an auction of the remaining museum's contents. Facility was in an old - leaky wooden aircraft hanger and was being manned by volunteers. Unfortunate that they couldn't have moved the museum down closer to the other two fine historical museums...

This museum was permanently closed in June 2016. The personal items were returned and the remainder auctioned off. Sorry to see this piece of history gone.

We visited here the last time my nephew was in town and we were all impressed at the large display and interesting facts.

This is an old wooden hanger from WWII and is privately owned, and houses a lot of information from the area as well as a few planes and old vehicles. There is no public funding from the government and they cannot expand the collection of airplanes due to the wooden nature of the building and potential fire hazards. There are... More
