For those with an interest in this type of museum, it is a must see. It is nicely laid out with terrific information. The front desk staff could have been a bit more friendly. Docents should be better informed of current activities with regards to events happening at the museum. When we were there a WW2 pilot was being returned... More

You can see the Chapel and the B-47 Stratojet from Interstate 95 just North of Exit 102 on the East side of the Interstate. There is much more on the 13 acre site. Inside the 90,000 square feet of the museum are displays of WWII artifacts, weapons, uniforms, and audio visual displays. Our guide, Dale Asbury, gave us a virtual... More

This museum is worth the time to visit. See uniforms and planes from WW II and up through Vietnam-era. You can spend a lot of time just reading and appreciating all of the displays. The layout is easy to follow. They have a special section on the women pilots and crews and their efforts to help win the war.

A wonderful stop for all WWII buffs or military admirers. Lots of artifacts and stunning film experiences, all spaciously laid out for easy pacing. Docents (John) are well-informed and helpful, convenient free parking and a nice restaurant. Great for half a day's enjoyment.

The museum is well planned out and details the 8th Air Force during WWII. It was easy to see the sacrifice made by these airmen and to learn that 26,000 of them never returned. I only wish I had allocated more time there, because there was much to see and read and reflect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The photo galleries and video presentations are very enlightening and tell the story of what our "greatest generation" endured in saving our civilization. The memorial garden and chapel are wonderful. Not a huge number of aircraft but what they have are well presented. Plan on at least half a day or more to really see... More
