Have been coming here for years - the amount of aircraft and history is second to none. Free admission, imax and simulators allow a lot of time.

Very small, but very well presented displays of the Wright Bros. printing, bicycle and airplane businesses. No admission. Includes a Parachute Museum upstairs.
