  • Drive by the museum today. They were closed, but I was lucky to be able to see a display of two planes and a helicopter outside. Very cool spot!  more »
  • Very interesting . . . There was more information here than I expected. If you like history and aircrafts, than you will enjoy visiting this museum. The history is mostly navy related with uniforms...  more »
  • We had a great time exploring this museum and I'm sure it was because of our tour guide. If you go ask for Jim!
  • Great place! So much to learn, they have great artifacts. There is also a gallery with pieces that portrait the influence of aircraft in our lives. People was nice and helpful and very passionate about this museum. There is a gift shop with good prices and curious things. I love how they made it accessible, bathroom and gallery.
