Wow! 4 plane hangars full of history and memorabilia. There is no admission fee to visit and has free parking. There was a feature film, gift shop and other souvenirs for purchase if you wanted to enhance your experience. There is a small food court to get a light lunch or snack. This is a great museum for all ages. Expect to spend a couple hours to get through it all. The volunteers were knowledgeable and very friendly. Interactive opportunities at each exhibit and seating areas to take a break if needed. A truly enjoyable experience and highly recommend for you to take the family or a friend with you!

This museum is incredible. The new hanger, that houses the Presidential planes, is fascinating! There is a lot to see and learn here; I have been here several times and have still not gotten through all of it. There are restrooms located in each hanger and there is a cafe and gift shop. I would definitely recommend trying out the virtual reality rides in hangers 3 and 4 (10$ per person). Be advised though, these are MASSIVE hangers, if you go, make sure you wear comfortable footwear for all the walking that you will be doing. :)

Literally this is such an amazing place. I'm a huge plane nerd and walking through this place is one of my favorite things to do. The history and the weight of this beautiful museum is second to none. The unique and historic planes displays and weapons they have are a nerds dream! It's so huge my feet hurt when I finished walking through it. You have got to go to this place it's simply amazing. I love it so much and I know anyone who goes here will as well.

This museum is amazing. There is so much to see. You need to take a full day just to stop read, watch, and look over everything. I have been here twice and still haven't stopped to look at it all. It's amazing to see the evolution of flying up close. It blows your mind to see the size of some of the planes as well as realizing how flight started to what it is now. Bring your walking shoes. They do offer wheel chairs, strollers, and scooters but I'm not sure the cost of that. However, admission is free. Free I say. Can't beat that. Definitely worth planning a trip to. Can't wait to go again.

Huge museum full of very interesting planes all the way from WWI, interwar years, WWII, and up through the late 90's and possible beyond. I would recommend planning out at least 4 hours here and at that point you're really just skimming the surface. There is a pretty detailed history of each model in the hangers, as well as a lot of other useful information everywhere throughout the museum. There are some drinking fountains but not as many as you would think - consider bringing water. There is a cafeteria and a smaller "snack" area as well. Also, there is motorcycle parking close to the entrance.
