We found this place searching for things to do in Trip Advisor. The place is a small military aircraft museum. Wonderful exhibit on the history of military aircraft and warfare. A number of newer and older aircraft. The have a new exhibit with a number of flight simulators. The also have a day camp teaching STEM and robotics. Enjoy!

While it is true that many airplane museums have more aircraft, this is a discovery (educational) center not a museum. I learned things here. It was easy to spend two hours here, about half of it looking at the timeline on the back wall depicting important events in aviation through the years. A restaurant inside offers a variety of food... More

It was a lot of fun being able to climb in some of the aircrafts and see them up close. Very informational. I was surprised to see how much they had to look at and go through. Good stop if you have a couple hours to spend.

A comfortable clean area to check out many different airplanes and things to do with aeronautics. Check their website for special events throughout the year.

The Wings of Eagles Discovery center is amazing. It has a variety of planes to look at. It is also used for many events. There have been school events, and party galas here.

The museum was not as good as I had hoped it would be. The planes on exhibit were good but there were not a lot of them. The chronological display around the outside walls is extensive but a lot to read and not so much to see. The new global weather exhibit is quite unique and a great teaching tool.... More

A little disappointing but if you are really into airplanes and war memorabilia, worth a stop. A small cafe located inside with extremely limited selection.

Thought this was a great little museum. The displays outline the journey of service men and women through each of the years of engagement. Quotes of the time, newspaper articles, pictures, etc. You will walk away with the stories of the those who gave so much - local hereos, Bessie Coleman, Tuskegee Airmen, and much more. Welcoming staff with available... More

Spent several hours at the museum. They have a very nice collection of aircraft spanning from WW II to present. Particular highlights were the full scale replicas of WW II Japanese kamikaze flying bomb and German He 162. In summary a very worthwhile visit. It can be done "quickly" in 90 minutes if short of time or over 3 -... More
