Great way to spend a day, they have a great "petting zoo" of aircraft outside and wonderful memories inside...a little something for everyone to see military past to present. I really enjoyed the experience and recommend it to anyone who loves military history and equipment....More

I thoroughly enjoyed walking around their great collection of Fighters and bombers. Most impressive were the big bombers such as B52, B47, B29 and B17. Their collection of fighters is so cool and I enjoyed reading their specs and about their distinguished service.
