Very cool place to take the kids. They're always updating and adding additional activities. The guides are very informative and answer any questions you may have. Going on the old planes is my favorite!

The museum was under some construction but the guides (volunteers) went above and beyond the call of duty to show us around to what they could. Many interesting items and so much history to digest.

As we were visiting our son at the base. he took us on the tour. It was such a history lesson of our military flyers. Pilots and planes. We even got to tour a Presidential plane. I recommend you see this site.
