So many exhibits to see, not just Naval history but aviation history too. The volunteers are enthused in the work as well. I spent a couple of hours and didn't even see everything!

What a delightful museum! It's jam packed with the history of the Naval Air Station which was open from 1940 to 1997. There's a China Clipper exhibit, a Jimmy Doollittle display and thousands of pieces of memoribilia, uniforms, model ships and planes... If you're really...More
