great museum with extensive pictures and artifacts from World War II. Several interactive exhibits, and several movie shorts to see. Several planes, including a B-17 that had been restored.

Great interactive tour! You can spend an hour or all day, there is that much to see. Take your time, there is a lot to enjoy and learn from their collection.

Nice museum. Educational. Exhibits inside and things to see outside. I do not recommend the summer camps-expensive and the counselors leave a lot to be desired. Not some p!ace young children will enjoy.
