Excellent place to teach children about the history of planes. Lots of fun for any history buff. The staff has a lot of knowledge and can answer questions.

We were there for a car show and found everything spectacular. We were even provided fish food to throw in the pond to feed the fish. All the employees were awesome. The date posted is not the actual date I was there

Thats a good question..I did see a few planes come and go while we were there,but i think its pretty much private. It is maintained by pilots im sure they would welcome you. Call them direct to be sure.
